Science / project plan

EGRIP is a 6 year project (2015-2020) with the aim to study the NE-Greenland Ice Stream. An ice core will be drilled to the base 2550 m down and a series of surface and atmospheric studies will be conducted in the vicinity of EGRIP research station. EGRIP is a Summer camp only with about 30 persons in the period 1.May to 20.August. The project is international with Danish leadership and coordination. Financing from A.P.Møller Foundation and University of Copenhagen, Denmark, U.S. NSF, Alfred Wegener Institute, Germany, Bjerkness Sentret, Bergen, National Institute of Polar Research, Tokyo, Klima und Umweltphysik, Berne and contributions from: France, China, S.Korea, Italy, Belgium
