The line scanner is scanning an ice core. This is done to be able to study the structure of the ice crystals and to be able to detect different layers.

The "Swiss saw" is cutting an ice core. The ice core is divided into several different small pieces which are sent to laboratories over the world for further analyzes. The ice saw dust from the Swiss saw cutting is gathered for 10Be studies at Uppsala University.
