EUFAR to become an AISBL !
After a lengthy period of negotiation, 8 European institutions representing 6 different countries involved in airborne environmental research have signed the necessary Statutes to constitute EUFAR as an AISBL – an international non-profit association under Belgian law. These documents will now be deposited with the Belgian courts so that EUFAR AISBL will be formally constituted early in 2018.

OIR – Airborne magnetic and ice penetrating radar field campaign around Dome Fuji, East Antarctica
At the end of 2016, European, American and Chinese institutes started to compete for the quest of the oldest continuous ice record on Earth in order to get 1 to 2 Ma of climate record. The first step was to select a site potentially containing such a record. The criteria to determine the most suitable site are thick ice sheet coupled with low snow accumulation rate, slow ice motion and low geothermal heat flow enabling low temperature at the bottom of the ice sheet. The area around the Dome Fuji in East Antarctica fulfilled these criteria.
