Research at Centre for Ice and Climate

Ice caps consist of snow depositing during the last many millennia, and ice cores drilled at the right locations contain samples of past precipitation. When analysed, the ice cores reveal climatic information from time periods far back in time, while the individual layers sometimes still show how climate changed from year to year.

At Centre for Ice and Climate, researchers study the ice caps and ice cores using state-of-the-art laboratories and computer models, thereby improving our knowledge of past, present, and future climate.
