Like all major ice-drilling operations in the United States Antarctic Program, the Hercules Dome project is a community platform.
Drilling is expected to begin at the earliest in the 2025/26 field season. The long lead time means that there are many opportunities to get involved. One of our goals is to bring new people into the ice core research community. View the project timeline for the latest schedule of anticipated activities.
