Ice cores - Revealing secrets of past climate

For the first time an international group of scientists will drill a deep ice core into a fast flowing ice stream in Greenland. During the summer of 2015 a team of researchers and students built the base on the ice stream in northeast Greenland, and in the summer of 2016 they started a comprehensive scientific surface field campaign, and initiated the ice core drilling. The aim of the project is to better understand the dynamics and properties of the fast flowing ice stream. Filming: Kerim Nisancioglu, Jørgen Peder Steffensen, Mari Fjalstad Jensen, Sarah Berben, Iben Koldtoft and Jason Amundson.

Tour with a polar scientist on the Greenland Ice Sheet

Follow the researcher Anne-Katrine Faber on a tour at her workplace at EastGRIP camp on the Greenland Ice Sheet. As part of the SNOWISO project she does fieldwork here to understand how climate information is stored in the ice. The goal is to make it possible to reveal more details about past climate changes from ice cores. Filmed by Anne-Katrine Faber.

Geophysics research on the Greenland Ice Sheet
