Checking out the GRIP casing
Today I led a group of 8 folks on a trip to visit the site of another deep ice core, GRIP (A European project contemporary with GISP2). It's about 30 km from Summit, so we had a little drive to get there. My agenda there was simple- measure exactly how much casing still protrudes from the snow (it's 102 cm, in case you are interested). It was a nice, uneventful trip, and all went well. This evening, I gave a Sunday Science lecture to an engaged audience, which was really nice. Tomorrow morning is an early start to work on Gifford's melt experiment.
