Glaciology Committee formed


  • Anonymous


A committee has been formed to draft a science plan for U.S. involvement in a second deep drilling project on the Greenland Ice Sheet. The first meeting was held in Columbus, Ohio, on July 12, 1984. This committee is addressing two primary issues: (1) potential scientific and logistic involvement in a new multinational program and (2) the advancement of glaciological research in the United States through a science program in Greenland. The committee has received letters from U.S. scientists expressing support and interest in this deep drilling effort.
