The U.S. Ice Drilling Program (IDP) invites input into their draft 2022 Long Range Science Plan.

Each year in the spring, the IDP works with its Science Advisory Board and the research community to update the Long Range Science Plan. This Plan identifies the science in the coming decade that will require the use of ice drilling technology and expertise for the community. This also drives the formation of other plans, for example, the Long Range Drilling Technology Plan. The plans provide the basis for multi‐annual planning for the actions and drill development projects of IDP and others, and the plans give the funding agencies advance notice of upcoming community science needs.

Those that need an ice core or a hole drilled in a glacier or ice sheet in the coming decade or a rock core from under shallow glacial ice, should ensure their science is captured in the current draft update of the Long Range Science Plan.

Those interested can read through the draft Long Range Science Plan and send corrections, updates, or additions to by 27 May 2022. When sending corrections/updates, reference the appropriate line number in the draft Long Range Science Plan where the correction/update is needed.

Deadline to submit input: 27 May 2022
