Science team members work in the South Pole Ice Core (SPICE) drilling tent, cleaning the drill and measuring ice cores

Science team members work in the South Pole Ice Core (SPICE) drilling tent, cleaning the drill and measuring ice cores. The Ice Drilling Design and Operations (IDDO) group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison designed and built the drilling system, called the Intermediate Depth Drill. Based on a Danish drill called the Hans-Taunsen drill, the Intermediate Depth Drill was purpose-built for coring 1,500 meters of ice. Photograph By: Peter Rejcek, National Science Foundation
