High-precision temperature measurements are being acquired in the 3-km-deep GISP2 borehole and in the companion European borehold at the GRIP site, 30 km to the east. These data will be used to reconstruct paleotemperatures on the surface of the ice sheet directly from the climate-induced temperature transients still remaining at depth in the ice. The data are also necessary for several other GISP2/GRIP studies, including:
