Ice cores drilled during the East Greenland Ice-Core Project (EastGRIP) 2022 field season from ca. 2300-2400 meters in depth - and around 65,000 years old - lie in aluminium trays in the buffer ice core storage waiting to be processed at the science trench. Ice cores keep unique records of past climatic and atmospheric conditions, informing our understanding of changing climate. EastGRIP aims to drill through 2650 meters of ice dating back 80,000 years, to glean new knowledge of past climates and ice-sheet dynamics and how fast-flowing ice streams will contribute to sea-level rise.
