Eventually, the entire GISP2 core was placed in reflective cardboard canisters like these and stored at the National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL), a state-of-the-art cold storage facility jointly sponsored by the National Science Foundation, the United States Geological Survey, and the University of Colorado, Boulder.
