Author(s) Ice Core Working Group

These are the Terms of Reference for the U.S. Ice Core Working Group.

Based on recommendations from a 1986 National Research Council report, the Ice Core Working Group (ICWG) was established to provide the National Science Foundation (NSF) with scientific and technical planning and advice. The ICWG and its parent organizations have evolved over time. The ICWG is currently a working group of the U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP), under the coordination of the IDP Science Advisory Board (IDP-SAB). The ICWG focus is scientific issues pertaining to ice cores, and as such provides direct advice to IDP and a forum to interface with other SAB working groups, as well as providing advice to NSF and the NSF Ice Core Facility (ICF). ICWG members are selected from the scientific community, and will represent the community in all ice coring discussion and planning activities.
