Description: CRREL Report
Abstract: By using a new thermocoring technique, a hole was successfully drilled through the 416-m thickness of the Ross Ice Shelf at J-9 Camp. This report provides a description of the drill and an account of this drilling project. A provisional examination of the core shows the ice shelf to consist of 410 m of snow and glacial ice underlain by 6 m of sea ice formed by direct freezing of sea water to the bottom of the Ross Ice Shelf.
