A station for deep ice-coring, Dome-F Station, is to be constructed by the Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) on top of Dome Fuji (3800m a. s. l.) in Antarctica, where the minimum temperature is expected to be -88oC and the mean annual temperature is -58oC. The planned station consists of two areas: a residence and a drilling area. The residence area includes living huts and a power station, to be constructed on the snow surface. The drilling area consists of a drilling trench, drill workshop and icecore and equipment storage trenches buried under the surface. To construct the station and conduct ice-coring operations, 263t of material must be transported 1000km by oversnow vehicles from Syowa Station to Dome-F.
