Following reconnaissance work during the 1974-75 field season (Lorius, 1975) and the development of a 1,000-meter deep thermal drill in our laboratory, it was proposed to use this equipment at dome C (elevation 3,200 meters). The accumulation rate for the last 20 years (4 centimeters of ice per year) obtained from radioactive fallout layers indicated that it could be possible to reach the coldest part of the Wisconsin ice age, the ice layers down to that depth being free of pertubations connected with ice dynamics.
