OIR – Airborne magnetic and ice penetrating radar field campaign around Dome Fuji, East Antarctica

OIR – Airborne magnetic and ice penetrating radar field campaign around Dome Fuji, East Antarctica

At the end of 2016, European, American and Chinese institutes started to compete for the quest of the oldest continuous ice record on Earth in order to get 1 to 2 Ma of climate record. The first step was to select a site potentially containing such a record. The criteria to determine the most suitable site are thick ice sheet coupled with low snow accumulation rate, slow ice motion and low geothermal heat flow enabling low temperature at the bottom of the ice sheet. The area around the Dome Fuji in East Antarctica fulfilled these criteria.
