88 Cores descends two miles through the Greenland Ice Sheet in one continuous pan dating back more than 110,000 years at bedrock. The GISP2D Ice Core was drilled between 1989-1993 as part of the the Greenland Ice Sheet Project, research sponsored by The National Science Foundation.
The pace and scale of the work is a gesture towards deep time and the gravity of climate change.
