|Title||Science Requirements: RAM Drill|
|Author(s)||Sridhar Anandakrishnan , Paul Winberry, IDPO|
The IDPO Long Range Science Plan 2016 identified science goals for ice drilling that spanned a wide range of science targets. For field projects with limited logistical support where geophysical information is needed, an agile, scientist-operated, shot hole drill is needed to rapidly create holes in firn to depths of approximately 40-100 m depths. From discussions organized by IDPO with iterative discussions between IDPO, scientists, and IDDO staff, the following are the science requirements for the drill.
