The 8th International Ice Drill Symposium will be held from 30 September to 3 October 2019 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Venue

The meeting will take place at The Royal Danish Academy of Sciences and Letters, downtown Copenhagen.

Description

Ice drills are crucial to access ice for climate research and other studies of the water and basal conditions under glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets. The ice related research, especially related to understanding the past and present climate, will improve our ability to predict the impacts under future climate changes.

New techniques are rapidly evolving within ice drills and include rapid access drills, replicate drilling and thermal and hot water drilling.

This symposium presents a timely opportunity to show recent advances in our knowledge and technological capabilities in ice drilling technology. In addition, the symposium will include the ice drill related themes like ice-core handling, borehole logging and ice-camp logistics.

Suggested topics

Ice drilling: Development within shallow, intermediate, deep drills
Hot water drilling: Development within shallow, intermediate, deep systems
Thermal ice drilling: Hot points techniques and coring abilities.
Rapid access ice drilling: Development of technologies for rapid access drilling
Sampling and clean technologies: Methods for exploration of subglacial environment
Probes: Use of ice drills in extraterrestrial investigations
Complicated conditions: Conditions like high altitude drilling, warm ice, firn aquifer layers, brittle ice, ice streams complicate ice drilling
Special aspects: Ice drilling technology include drilling fluids, control systems, surface and auxiliary equipment and drill cables and hoses
Directional drilling: There is a need for replicate sampling in many ice drill projects.
Ice core handling: Logging and handling ice cores
Borehole logging: For drill support and science
Logistics: Drill camp operations and future projects
New challenges: Future development of ice drilling technology
