Document DetailsCompiled Reports of the U.S. Ice Core Research Workshop
|Authors:||U.S. Ice Core Research Workshop|
|Abstract:||From 13-17 June 1988 an NSF-Division of Polar Programs sponsored workshop entitled:
"The U.S. Ice Core Research Workshop" was held in Durham, New Hampshire. The
Workshop brought together a relatively large number (42) of U.S. researchers interested
in ice core research and representatives of the European ice core research community.
The purpose of the Workshop was to develop a consensus concerning the direction of U.S. ice core research through the 1990's. Specific emphasis was placed on the newest major proposed U.S. deep drilling effort, GISP II (Greenland Ice Sheet Project II) and the development of a global strategy for U.S. ice core research to include deep drilling efforts in not only Greenland but also in Antarctica plus shallow to intermediate core recovery programs at low, middle and high latitude sites.
