Core data updating records
Below this depth, electromechanical or thermal drills are used.The cutting apparatus of a drill is on the bottom end of a drill barrel, the tube that surrounds the core as the drill cuts downward.Radioactive elements, either of natural origin or created by nuclear testing, can be used to date the layers of ice.Some volcanic events that were sufficiently powerful to send material around the globe have left a signature in many different cores that can be used to synchronise their time scales.
The lowest layer of a glacier, called basal ice, is frequently formed of subglacial meltwater that has refrozen.
A design for ice core augers was patented in 1932 and they have changed little since.
An auger is essentially a cylinder with helical metal ribs (known as flights) wrapped around the outside, at the lower end of which are cutting blades.
It can make some snow sublimate, leaving the top inch or so less dense.
