Prediction and modeling of climate change and its effect on the environment and humankind is one of the most challenging tasks facing science today. Knowledge of how climate has changed in the past is essential to this effort. On 1 July 1993, the Greenland Ice Sheet Project Two (GISP2) successfully completed drilling 3,053.44 m to the base of the central Greenland Ice Sheet—at 72°35'N 38°29'W, 3,200 m above sea level—recovering the deepest ice core record that is achievable in the northern hemisphere.
