NEEM (North Eemian greenland Ice Core)

Units : Glaciology | ULB182

Description :

NEEM is an international program of deep ice core drilling initiated during the International Polar Year. The principal challenge
of NEEM is to obtain a high resolution trustable climatic record of the beginning of the Eemian and, if possible, of all or part
of the preceding glacial period. An adequate location has been chosen in North West Greenland (77°30'N, 51°O) on echo-sounding
grounds. The ULB contribution lies in the analysis of the NEEM basal ice layers and in the modelling of ice flow around the site
