Final processing of NEEM 2011 Shallow Core 1 (S1)
Celebration of the day: the deepest part of the S1 shallow core was processed in the science trench.
This afternoon the deepest part of the S1 shallow core was processed in the science trench and the 79 AD Vesuvius eruption was clearly identified.
The total length of ice cores that has been processed in the NEEM science trench is thus close to 3 km. THANK YOU all ice core processors for doing a great job!
The CFA lab went out to the previously sampled pit to drill a 12m core that will bring the CFA dataset up to present day.
On the skiway, Gunnar was preparing for the approaching flight missions. Fortunately, the skiway is already in quite good conditions, so not too much work is required.
What we have done today:
1. NEEM S2 drilling depth 63.34 m.
2. NEEM S1 ice core processing: bag 718 - 747 (394.35 - 410.85 m) The End!
3. Preparing apron and skiway with Pistenbully tiller
4. Drilling 12 m 3-inch shallow core at ‘CFA’ pit site for CFA analysis
5. Chinese pit sampling for chemistry study
Weather: Clear blue sky all day long. Temp. -7°C to -13 °C wind 4 - 12 knots from S.
The 79 AD Vesuvius eruption was clearly identified.
Gunnar was preparing for the approaching flight missions.
