Ice Core Database

Find Our Samples

Currently, the freezer in the archive comprises samples from the Canadian High Arctic and the Yukon.

We are developing a searchable database for the archive that we will upload soon. We are also in the process of creating digital scans of every piece of ice in the archive; the digital image catalog will complement the current database and include relevant data about our samples.

In the meantime, please inquire directly with the ice core staff (Alison Criscitiello at or Anne Myers at regarding the ice inventory. Otherwise, feel free to explore the database with our interactive map below.

Use the interactive map to track where our ice core samples come from and other data.
