The Ice Core Working Group (ICWG) is a group of scientists who investigate scientific issues pertaining to ice cores. Members are selected from the scientific community. The ICWG is one of the three standing working groups of the Science Advisory Board.
- T.J. Fudge (University of Washington; ICWG Chair)
- Becky Alexander (University of Washington)
- Christine Foreman (University of Montana)
- Andrei Kurbatov (University of Maine)
- Vas Petrenko (University of Rochester)
- Summer Burton Rupper (The University of Utah)
- Jeff Severinghaus (Scripps Institution of Oceanography)
- The ICWG shall solicit input from the community to identify future ice core drilling sites and ice core science activities for short term and long term planning.
- The ICWG shall help form, review, and recommend to SAB and IDP the future science site drilling matrix for the Long Range Science Plan.
- The ICWG may identify and recommend to SAB and IDP new ice coring technology development needed by the community, if any.
- The ICWG will make itself available to provide scientific perspectives and information on activities at the National Science Foundation - Ice Core Facility relating to:
- Sample allocation
- Policies on sample acquisition and use of the facility
- Ice core processing techniques
- Archiving practice
- The ICWG may help coordinate international partnering for ice coring projects including IPICS projects.
- The ICWG members will engage in discussion with members of other working groups to propagate information about ICWG activities, to learn about activities of other groups, and to foster coordination between the working groups.
- The ICWG meetings shall have minutes. The Chair of the ICWG is responsible for sending the minutes to the Chair of other IDP-SAB working groups. Minutes of the meetings shall be posted to the ICWG web site.
