The Polar Ice Coring Office (PICO) was tasked by the National Science Foundation, Office of Polar Programs to support ice coring activities in the Cascade Mountains, Washington State for the Branch of Sedimentary Processes, United States Glaciology Survey (USGS). The purpose of the ice coring project was to recover an ice core from the P-5 accumulation area of the South Cascade Glacier in order to determine the viability of paleoclimate reconstruction from a temperate ice core with high dust loading and well documented mass balance data. The USGS project was carried out under the direction of Dr. Joan Fitzpatrick, Branch of Sedimentary Processes, United States Geological Survey, Denver, Colorado, with assistant Keith Woodburne.
