Ice Core Facility


  • Anonymous


To support its program of studying ice cores taken from the Greenland, Antarctic and midlatitude ice sheets, the Division of Polar Programs of the National Science Foundation is soliciting proposals for operating its ice core curatorial facility.

NSF's current ice core repository is at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where it has been operated under annual contract since 1975. Beginning in Fiscal Year 1991, whoever manages the NSF facility, now to be called the U.S. Ice Core Repository, will do it under a 5-year cooperative agreement.
