Each year in the spring the Ice Drilling Program Office (IDPO) of the
U.S. Ice Drilling Program works with its Science Advisory Board and with
the research community to update the IDPO Long Range Science Plan. This
plan identifies the science in the coming decade that will require the
use of ice drilling technology and expertise, and it drives the
formation of the associated Ice Drilling Design and Operations (IDDO)
Long Range Drilling Technology Plan. Together, the plans provide the
basis for multi-annual planning for the actions and drill development
projects of IDPO-IDDO, and the plans give the funding agencies advance
notice of upcoming community science needs.

If you will need an ice core or a hole drilled in a glacier or ice sheet
in the coming decade, this is an opportunity to make sure that the
high-level articulation of your science is captured in the current draft
update of the plan. Please read through the draft Long Range Science
Plan and send corrections, updates, or additions to as soon as possible, but not later than June 12th.

Submission deadline: Wednesday, 12 June 2013.
