Other Antarctic drilling projects are doing great too. The New Zealand led international effort to recover an ice core from Roosevelt Island reached bedrock at 763 m. This long coveted record will be a great compliment to the Siple Dome record and will contain a good ENSO record. It was drilled with an impressively light logistics footprint. WISSARD tested a hot water drill by drilling 900 m through the Ross Ice Shelf and will be moving to Subglacial Lake Whillans. The crew at Pine Island Glacier drilled through the Pine Island Glacier ice shelf (two 500 m deep hot water holes, 20 cm diameter) and installed ocean monitoring instruments.
