Record #101112:

Borehole drilling to the bed of Ice Stream B, Antarctica / Hermann Engelhardt, Mark Fahnestock, Neil Frank Humphrey, W. Barclay Kamb.

Title: Borehole drilling to the bed of Ice Stream B, Antarctica / Hermann Engelhardt, Mark Fahnestock, Neil Frank Humphrey, W. Barclay Kamb.
Author(s): Engelhardt, Hermann.
Fahnestock, Mark.
Humphrey, Neil Frank.
Kamb, W. Barclay.
Date: 1989.
In: Antarctic Journal of the United States. (1989.), Vol. 24(5) (1989)
Abstract: Key to rapid motion of many ice streams may lie at bottom of ice. In 1988-89, first bore-hole study of Antarctic ice stream was carried out on B. Five holes were drilled to bedrock. Procedure and problems are outlined. Samples of rock materials contained marine diatoms of Oligocene, Miocene, Pliocene, and, possibly, Pleistocene age. Implications of this are discussed.
