TH13C. Scientific Drilling in the Polar Regions

15 December 2014, 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Moscone West - Room 2006

Event Type:

Town Hall

Ice sheets and the underlying bedrock and sediment hold crucial evidence of past climate and cratonic geology. National and international collaboration for drilling in the remote polar regions requires strategic coordination between science, technology, and logistics. This town hall will provide the research community with updates on IDPO-IDDO, NICL, IPICS, RAID, and ANDRILL initiatives. Opportunities for community involvement will be showcased, and input from the audience will be solicited.
