Intermediate Depth Logging Winch - Science Requirements
Authors: U.S. Science Community and IDPO
Year: 2011

Acquisition of logging winches for the borehole logging community is one of the high-priority items identified in the Long Range Science Plan. Through many discussions with the borehole logging community, a set of science requirements for an intermediate-depth winch have been developed. The intermediate-depth winch will be capable of logging holes 1500 meters deep, operate at temperatures as low as -45 degrees C, transportable by a single Twin Otter flight, and is intended for general community use. IDPO Science Advisory Board member Ryan Bay will serve as the science community user contact for IDDO as they pursue acquisition of the winch. This document contains the science requirements for the intermediate-depth winch.
