Research/Observation Title

North Greenland Icecore Project (NGRIP)

Science Summary (common)

[purpose] To extract paleo-climate information from the NGRIP deep ice core, Greenland by conducting deep ice core drilling and analyses [operation] Conducted a deep core drilling from a depth of 1951 m to a depth of 2931m, and a core processing below a depth of 1300 m. All ice samples were transported to Copenhagen by air. Japanese participation has been arranged under a leadership of Dr. O. Watanabe, NIPR since 1995.
