The following is a summary of comments presented during an open discussion on electromechanical ice core drilling systems at the Workshop on Ice Core Drilling in Grenoble, France on October 10, 1988.

Commends regarding the characteristics of existing ice core drilling systems are attributed to the respective laboratory or institution by the following abbreviations: AWI = Alfred Wegener Institute, Federal Republic of Germany; ILTS - Institute of Low Temperature Studies, University of Hokkaido, Japan; PICO - Polar Ice Coring Office, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, U.S.A.; UBern - Physics Institute, University of Bern, Switzerland; UCPH - Geophysical Institute, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The discussion of electromechanical ice core drilling systems proceeded with the identification of major drill components and the various approaches, design criteria, fabrication techniques, and field experiences related to each component.
