Description

This is a small portion of the 15,000 ice cores stored in the -35 degree F. freezer at the National Ice Core Laboratory in Denver CO. These ice cores are from all over the world from Greenland to Antarctica.Note this is only a partial pan. My GigaPan froze - and I don't mean in the computer sense, I mean in the physical/thermal sense! For the later South Pole Gigapans, we made a "glove" with pockets for hand-warmers to keep the mechanism from freezing in the extreme temperatures. It worked!
