It’s a freezing cold day inside the National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL) in Denver, Colorado. That’s because the NICL is a facility for storing and studying ice cores recovered from the polar regions of the world. And, saws are buzzing, as scientists from all over the U.S. are measuring and cutting pieces of precious Antarctic glacier ice to take back to their labs for research. Part of the National Science Foundation Series “Science Nation.”
