Dear  Sergey,

recently we have studied the stable isotope composition of block ice 
(10-20 meter thick) in ice cave and we got interesting results, but the 
interpretation of the data is not so easy. Therefore we are thinking 
about to measure the isotopic composition of CO2 trapped in the ice if 
there is a cheap method for sampling. From your letter I see that you 
have experience with stable isotope analyses of CO2 trapped in ice.
Would you be so kind to refer me to papers describing methods for 
sampling this CO2 gas for stable isotope analysis? We would like to take 
samples from cave ice, and the cave is not reachable by car, only by foot!!

Best regards
Istvan Forizs
