Summary
Abstract: Society would benefit greatly from the ability to efficiently allocate
resources to minimize disruptions caused by climate change. This requires the
ability to predict the response of future climate to natural and anthropogenic
forcing on time scales of months to centuries. To do so we need to understand
how the sun, ocean, land, atmosphere, and cryosphere interact to ... View entire text

Description: The National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL) is a joint facility funded and operated
by the U.S. Geological Survey and the National Science Foundation. Scientific
management is provided by the University of New Hampshire.

NICL is located on the grounds of the Denver Federal Center in Lakewood,
Colorado. The facility currently houses over 14,000 meters of ice cores from 34
drill sites in Greenland, Antarctica, and high mountain glaciers in the Western
United States.

These cores are recovered and studied for a variety of scientific
investigations, most of which focus on the reconstruction of past climate
states of the Earth. By investigating past climate fluctuations, scientists
hope to be able to understand the mechanisms by which climate change is
accomplished, and in so doing, they hope to develop predictive capabilities for
future climate change.
