How are ice cores obtained?

    Ice cores are obtained with a special drill that bores a circular hole into the glacier or ice sheet. The drill the clamps down on the ice inside the circle and it is drawn out to the surface. This ice is what’s called the ice core. It must then be transported in a refrigerated vehicle for analysis.
