Day 5 – Part 2 – Drill core

Today we took our first drill core from the Antisana Glacier and that was only possible thanks to great teamwork.

Robert and Ricarda, our two scientists, whose main focus is ice, were in charge of drilling a 1 meter long core out of the ice (we do this with an ice core drill, which you can see here in Ricarda’s luggage).

The ice core was then divided into several segments and transported downwards. We all helped and were happy when everything arrived well packaged in our accommodation.
