EUFAR Workshop on Stratospheric Airborne Research
The EUFAR workshop on stratospheric airborne research was held in Rome, at the CNR headquarters, from 4 to 5 May 2017. Its aims were to discuss the future research topics that may be tackled by a stratospheric research aircraft, and to provide suggestions on how to secure the availability of such an aircraft in Europe in the coming decade.

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.
