My experience at the CIC in Copenhagen

This is a short video summarising my weeks work experience at the CIC in Copenhagen. I had an absolutely amazing time and learnt so, so much. I completed one of my childhood dreams: to work with ice cores as a climate archive. I apologise that my video editing skills are not the finest, but I hope you enjoy the insight into the great work that happens at the CIC. There are some really brilliant people there!

The Centre For Ice And Climate

The Centre For Ice And Climate

I went to the Centre for Ice and Climate for a week in Copenhagen. It is in affiliation with the Niels Bohr Institute and University of Copenhagen. I was working with Paul Vallelonga in the CFA (Continual Flow Analysis) lab, melting firn from the North East Greenland Ice Stream (NEGIS), as well running NEEM S1 discrete samples. I was fortunate enough to work with Anders Svensson and cut the NEGIS firn for one morning. In addition, I was able to work with the Swansea Tephra Group and cut GRIP ice for tephra analysis. 

It was the most amazing experience and I loved every second of it. It has only enthused my desires to pursue a career in palaeoclimatology!
