Deep core drilling in ice began about 1950 with three projects. The French bored two holes in Greenland at Camp VI and at Station Centrale to depths of 126 m and 150 m respectively (Heuberger, 1954). The Juneau Icefield Research Project (Miller, 1954) core drilled about 100 m into the temperate Taku Glacier in Alaska. The 1949-1952 British-Norwegian-Swedish Antarctic Expedition cored to a depth of about 100 m on the shelf ice along the DronninMaud Land coast (Schytt, 1958). Mechanical drill rigs were used for all of these corings.
