The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) will hold an American Geophysical Union (AGU) Town Hall on scientific drilling in the polar regions on Tuesday, 7 December 2021, from 6:15-7:15 p.m. Central Time. This is an online only event.
Town Hall Abstract:
Ice sheets, glaciers, and the underlying bedrock, sediment, and permafrost hold crucial evidence of past climate, ice sheet dynamics, and cratonic geology. National and international collaboration for drilling in the remote polar regions requires strategic coordination between science, technology, and logistics. This meeting will provide the research community with brief updates from the U.S. Ice Drilling Program, Ice Core Young Scientists (ICYS), International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS), GreenDrill, and Hercules Dome. In addition, opportunities for community involvement will be showcased, and input from the audience will be solicited.
