Ice & Snow

GNS Science has ongoing research programmes in the harsh frozen wastes of Antarctica as well as closer to home in the glaciated peaks of the Southern Alps.

Find out all about our ice core research and ANDRILL check out our photo galleries and videos from different expeditions to the Ice. We also have some lesson plans for teachers to introduce students to Antarctica and the way ice interacts with the oceans and sediments. We also have a page of links that has the best websites for finding out all you could want to know about ice and snow, and the frosty continent.

Also check out the New Zealand Ice Core Research Facility which can store over 2000m of ice cores for sampling and analysis!
