The British Antarctic Survey (BAS) is a leading environmental research center that focuses on the United Kingdom’s national scientific activities in Antarctica. Some of their current research includes long-term monitoring of global climate change via ice core sample analysis of the polar ice caps in both Antarctica and Greenland. In this video, Dr. Ailsa Benton, Ice Core Analytical Scientist at with the BAS, describes her research and how she and her team use a Thermo Scientific Dionex Fast Ion Chromatograph with dual channel system to increase throughput and analyze samples every 1.25 minutes. Additionally, she explains how BAS scientists are able to analyze essential anions at detection limits in the ice core samples and how this helps provide essential information on climate and environmental conditions to thoroughly monitor long-term global climate change.
