Due to concerns regarding the spread of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), the NSF-ICF is taking preventive measures and suspending its tour program until further notice. Any groups that have been impacted by the tour shutdown will be prioritized when we resume tour operations. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Ice cores provide unique quantitative knowledge about past climate change, and have become one of the most persuasive symbols of the importance of polar science. 24 nations have active ice core programmes, and are represented in International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS).
Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS) held a highly successful one-day workshop for early career researchers on 6 March 2016. The workshop was held in conjunction with the International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS) 2016 second open science conference in Hobart, Australia.
