Abstract:

To successfully drill deep boreholes in glaciers, it is necessary to precisely monitor the following parameters: borehole geometry (diameter and profile, inclination); position of drill instrument in the borehole; position of the ice core in the core barrel; quality and conditions of the borehole fluid.

Operational information regarding these parameters allows increased efficiency of the drilling process and decreases losses of the ice core.
