Cutting ice cores by means of high pressure water jets appears to be a better technique than the conventional way of cutting by saw. In this analysis we have attempted to estimate the heating effect of the jet on the core. That is, can the warm water jet heat up the ice core so much that it may cause subsequent structural damage to the core?
