Abstract/Summary

Predicting how climate will change in the future requires a sound understanding of physical processes. This is underpinned by observation of how and why climate has changed in the past. Ice cores are a rich source of such information, and a topic that combines exciting fieldwork with a highly relevant academic discipline. In this article I will describe what ice cores are, and how we collect them, and describe some of the important results obtained from them.
