Ice core records have led to many important discoveries and have revolutionized climate science. Continued U.S. scientific productivity in this area, including both knowledge generation and creation of the next generation of scientists, critically depends upon a mechanism for ensuring continuity and international cooperation in ice coring efforts, along with availability of appropriate drills, drilling expertise, and innovations in drilling technology. To answer this need, the National Science Foundation has funded the Ice Drilling Program Office (IDPO) at Dartmouth as a Cooperative Agreement. IDPO-Dartmouth then has subawards to other institutions (UNH, Colorado School of Mines, and to the Ice Drilling Design and Operations (IDDO) group at the University of Wisconsin) for specific sub-efforts. The goals of IDPO are to: 1) provide community leadership in ice drilling research and development
Yes, all of it
