Caption: Photograph showing how an ice core is cut for oxygen isotope sampling. After drilling a core of ice to a depth of 10m this was cut into sections and a portion of each was melted. The water obtained was mixed and a sample of it taken to the UK for laboratory analysis of oxygen isotopes. This gives information about climatic change in Antarctica.
