Cool Stuff for Everyone

Ice core researchers work in extreme conditions, where Mother Nature can play a key role in the success of their mission. Face-to-face with the polar environment, they're quick to share their passion for its spectacular beauty and the importance of the work they do, piecing together the historic story of earth's fragile climate systems as recorded in the ice.

This section of the website contains links to repositories of field images (both still and video) and some "just plain fun" interactive multi-media (Miscellaneous) where you can test your own knowledge of climate change or hear stories from polar researchers.

Check out these resources through the links on this page!
