About U.S. Ice Drilling Program, University of Wisconsin-Madison

The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) is a facility funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). IDP conducts integrated planning for the ice drilling science and technology communities, and provides drilling technology and operational support that enables the community to advance the frontiers of climate and environmental science. The IDP group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Space Science & Engineering Center develops, deploys and supports drilling systems and instrumentation in support of the national scientific community's research across the world in polar and glacial regions. IDP's history developing, maintaining and operating a diverse set of ice drilling and coring systems, rock drills, and associated support equipment ranges from small hand-held drills to ice drill systems that drill through the icecaps to retrieve rock cores. The challenge of operating drills and systems in these environments requires a broad set of disciplines and skills from the team of people involved.
