Subscribe to the U.S. Ice Drilling Program email list to receive the latest news and announcements revelant to the ice drilling and ice coring science and technology communities.
The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) is a NSF-funded facility. IDP conducts integrated planning for the ice drilling science and technology communities, and provides drilling technology and operational support that enables the community to advance the frontiers of climate and environmental science.
If you are preparing a NSF proposal that includes any kind of support from IDP, you must include a Letter of Support from IDP in the proposal. Researchers are asked to provide IDP with a detailed support request three weeks prior to the date the Letter of Support is required. Early submissions are strongly encouraged.
Virtual Field Labs are unique interactive Education and Outreach products designed for students from late middle school to college. Virtual Field Labs are designed for students to watch with a teacher present (virtually or in-person) or independently on their own computers. Each Virtual Field Lab takes students along with a climate scientist as they collect and analyze data to answer a different climate question.More Information
The School of Ice provides professional development workshops for faculty from Minority Serving Institutions, training participants to understand paleoclimate evidence derived from ice cores. It also provides participants with the opportunities and training to acquire the skills necessary to bring this exciting inquiry into new and existing Earth and environmental science classes on their campuses.More Information
The Education and Outreach website hosts free teaching resources on topics of ice core science, ocean circulation, polar science, process of science, teaching tools, and virtual field labs that offer new participatory experiences for online learning. The website provides resources for classrooms or informal science program efforts with data that is useful to decision-makers of all backgrounds.More Information
