ANDRILL: ANtarctic geological DRILLing

McMurdo Sound - ANDRILL Science Implementation Committee
National Antarctic Science Program Managers from Germany, Italy, New Zealand and USA formally established the McMurdo Sound - ANDRILL Science Implementation Committee (M-ASIC) to be responsible for all scientific aspects of the two approved ANDRILL projects. Each of these nations is represented on the M-ASIC by a principal representative and by an alternate representative. The M-ASIC works with the ANDRILL Operations Management Group (AOMG) for overall planning and implementation, and is supported by the staff of the Science Management Office (SMO). The main objectives of the M-ASIC are to see that all science aspects of the funded projects are met and that science requirements have been appropriately considered in drill system design and field operations planning. This includes ensuring that (1) the planning of project science is fully developed, (2) the science plans are put into effect, (3) the results from each project are appropriately reported, and (4) the recovered cores are properly curated.
