Record #191609:

Core matters: Greenland, Denver and the GISP2 ice core / Heather Frazar.

Title: Core matters: Greenland, Denver and the GISP2 ice core / Heather Frazar.
Author(s): Frazar, Heather.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: London: I.B. Tauris
In: High places : cultural geographies of mountains and ice. (2008.),
Abstract: Describes GISP2 ice core project and related activities from perspective of cultural geographer. Outlines choice of site at summit of Greenland Ice Sheet and mechanisms by which climatological information becomes trapped in ice. Contrasts precisely located drill site with core extracted at great depth from deforming ice sheet, whose material origins span the globe and 200,000 years. Describes processes of core drilling, protection from damage and contamination, transportation to National Ice Core Laboratory in Denver, accession, archiving and analysis at NICL, distribution for analysis elsewhere, and fate of ice no longer considered sufficiently valuable to store. Emphasises relationship between scientific outcomes and material conditions connecting researchers and laboratories to GISP2 ice.
