After considering numerous shipping containers and different modes of transportation, transporting the ice core in leased, 20-foot marine freezer containers aboard the U.S. Navy ship Green Wave from Greenland to Bayonne, N.J., appears to be the safest and most economical way. Trucking the ice core inside a frozen van on a trailer with air ride suspension from Bayonne, N.J., to Denver seems to be the best transportation method for this leg of the journey. The equipment used is readily available, proven reliable, and can be leased for a competitive price.
