Cryo-cell UV-LA-ICPMS is a new technique for direct chemical
analysis of frozen ice cores at high spatial resolution (<300 mm). It
was tested in a pilot study on NGRIP ice and reveals sea ice/dust
records and annual layer signatures at unprecedented spatial/time
resolution. Uniquely, the location of cation impurities relative to
grain boundaries in recrystallized ice can be assessed.
