Abstract

An end-to-end system for optical image acquisition and data processing for ice cores has been developed for the United States National Ice Core Laboratory (NICL). The components of this system include highly integrated, automated methods for image capture in the cold-room environment and subsequent analysis by scientists. These components seamlessly manage the various aspects of physical scanning, metadata capture, image processing tests for data quality assurance, database integration and file management, processing of raw data to standard products, data distribution, and image processing and annotation tools for end-users in the ice core science community. The system has been tested operationally on cores retrieved from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divide drilling project during the core processing lines at NICL in 2006 and 2007.
