Core processing includes the inspection, registration, labeling and packing of ice cores as well as first measurements in the field. The methods of core processing applied during core drillings at Dye 3 and South Pole are presented. A modified version that will be applied in summer 1989 in Central Greenland is discussed in more detail. It includes the cutting and melting of subcores and the measurement of certain impurity concentrations (e.g. H2O2) continuously along the core in the field.
