Methods for the continuous study of ice core structure and impurities have been examined. Laser sensors have a high spatial resolution and can be used for quantitative investigation of ice crystals, air bubble, brine cells and insoluble inclusions. Electrical conductivity measurements can be used to obtain pilot data for further detailed chemical composition studies of ice cores. A continuous sampling system offers the opportunity to make continuous analysis of meltwater. Multiparametric investigations of an ice core can be done as quickly as 1 cm/min.
