The Polar Ice Coring Office (PICO) used a new hot-water drill and a new 200-meter winch and electromechanical coring drill at three antarctic locations during the 1983-1984 field season. Hot-water drilling of shot holes for the University of Wisconsin-Madison seismic program was conducted at Upstream B (83°31.2'S 138°05'W) on the Siple Coast. PICO collaborated with the Physics Institute, University of Bern, Switzerland, in two drilling and core processing projects: (1) a 201-meter ice core was collected at Siple Station for analysis by the University of Bern group and (2) at South Pole Stations, a core was drilled from 230 to 353.5 meters in a hole left open after the 1982-1983 season.
