Subglacial/Borehole Logging Working Groups: Call for Participants

Joseph Souney Jr.
Subglacial/Borehole Logging Working Groups: Call for Participants
Science Advisory Board of the U.S. Ice Drilling Program Office

The Science Advisory Board (SAB) of the NSF-funded Ice Drilling Program Office (IDPO; http://icedrill.org) wants to ensure it captures the complete breadth of community input for on-going and future needs of the ice drilling science community. The SAB seeks to form two new working groups; each group will organize by teleconferences and webinars to up-date the community about progress in ice drilling foci and receive input on current community concerns and future needs.

The two working groups are:
(1) Working Group on Subglacial Access Drilling (WGSAD) that will represent the broad range of scientists interested in gaining data from beneath glaciers and ice sheets. The breadth of fields includes (but is not limited to) basement and bedrock geology, Cenozoic sedimentary basins, till, heat flow, exposure dating, stream hydrology (englacial, subglacial), geochemistry, limnology, oceanography, microbiology, etc. Ross Powell, currently on the SAB, will initially lead the group. Other standing SAB members currently representing these communities are Jill Mikucki for microbiology, and Howard Conway for exposure dating.

(2) Working Group on Borehole Logging (WGBL) that will represent the broad range of scientists interested in deploying logging instruments in glaciers and ice sheets. Ryan Bay and Gary Clow, who are both currently on the SAB, will initially lead the group.

If you are interested in contributing to either of these working groups and advising on future paths the U.S. ice drilling program should take, please notify Joseph Souney of IDPO at [hidden email] by May 18.

Sorry for any cross-postings.
