Abstract

This dataset includes several geographical-information-system (GIS, ArcGIS) shapefiles relating to this study:

Briner, J.P., Walcott, C.K., Schaefer, J.M., Young, N.E., MacGregor, J.A., Poinar, K., Keisling, B.A., Anandakrishnan, S., Albert, M.R., Kuhl, T., Boeckmann, G. (submitted). Where to GreenDrill? Site selection for cosmogenic nuclide exposure dating of the bed of the Greenland Ice Sheet. The Cryosphere. [link to article]

The layers show suitable targets for drilling into the Greenland Ice Sheet bed for cosmogenic nuclide analysis using available drills from the US Ice Drilling Program, notably the ASIG and Winke drills.
