North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling NEEM ice core Eem ice cores Inland ice climate research

The North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling - NEEM - is an international ice core research project aimed at retrieving an ice core from North-West Greenland (camp position 77.45°N 51.06°W) reaching back through the previous interglacial, the Eemian. The project logistics is managed by the Centre for Ice and Climate, Denmark, and the air support is carried out by US ski equipped Hercules managed through the US Office of Polar Programs, National Science Foundation.

The layout of an ice core drilling camp

At the start of the 2008 field season, the NEEM camp consists of a single heavy-duty tent, some vehicles, and a skiway. By the end of the season, there will be numerous buildings together with trenches under the snow surface for ice core drilling and analysis. Take a look at the camp layout here.
