AbstractThere are many kinds of natural ice found on our planet. These include glacier ice, ice sheets, cave ice, massive ground ice, ice-wedge ice and permafrost ice. The problems associated with the recovery and dating of the CO2 and other gases contained in these kinds of ice is reviewed. New data are presented on various kinds of natural ice. How this kind of data can be used to help determine the origin and history of natural ice samples is discussed, along with the kind of paleoclimatic information that might be obtained from natural ice samples.
