|Periodical/Journal:||Ice-Core Drilling (ed. J.F. Splettstoesser), University of Nebraska Press, Lincoln, NE|
During the past seven years the Antarctic Division has gained considerable experience in the thermal core drilling of intermediate depth boreholes. Following CRREL developments, a drill plant especially suited to the requirements of the Australian expeditions has been developed. The new drill is described; it features caravan housing, improved operator convenience and protective devices. Drilling experience and borehole logging instruments are also discussed.
