How do you save melting ice?

Scientists have been studying ice samples from glaciers around the world, but how do you stop it from melting?

Researchers all over the world, including in the French Alps, have been drilling into huge ice glaciers to learn more about them.

Glaciers are huge sheets of ice made from lots of layers of snow that has been pressed together.

They can be found in snowy mountain regions of the world.

Some glaciers only last for a few months, as they melt when the weather gets warmer.

This means that scientists have had to find a clever way of keeping their research samples cool by sending them to Antarctica!

We spoke to BBC science reporter Victoria Gill to find out more about how they do it...
