A cooperative ice core drilling, core processing, and stratigraphic logging program was conducted at Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station during 1981-82 season by investigators from the Polar Ice Coring Office (PICO), the national Hydrology Research Institute/Environment Canada (NHRI), and the U.S. Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL). A 202.4-meter ice core was collected, logged and packaged in the field, and then shipped to the CRREL ice core storage facility, where it will be made available to National Science Foundation-sponsored glaciologists for further analysis.
