The overall scientific planning of the EastGRIP project is the responsibility of the Scientific Steering Committee (SC), and is in practice handled via a number of consortia, which coordinate the scientific activities and make plans for data sharing, publications, etc.
The consortia are:
- Impurity consortium: chairs Hubertus Fischer (CH), Kumiko Goto-Azuma (JP) and Helle Kjær (DK).
- Gas consortium: chair Thomas Blunier (DK), co-chair Ed Brook (US).
- Water isotopes consortium: chair Bo Vinther (DK), co-chair Bruce Vaughn (US).
- Geophysical consortium: chair Daniela Janssen (DE), chairs Nanna Karlsson (DK) and Knut Christianson (US).
- Drilling consortium: chairs Steffen Bo Hansen (DK) and Karl-Emil Nielsen (DK).
- Basal ice consortium: chairs Elizabeth Bagshaw (UK) and Jørgen Peder Steffensen (DK).
- Borehole logging consortium: chair Frank Wilhelms (DE), co-chair Dorthe Dahl-Jensen (DK).
- Ice dynamics modelling and remote sensing consortium: chairs Christine Hvidberg (DK) and Kerim Nisancioglu (N).
- Dating consortium: chair Sune Olander Rasmussen (DK), co-chairs Ross Edwards (US) and Christo Buizert (US).
- Physical properties consortium: chair Ilka Weikusat (DE) and co-chair Dorthe Dahl-Jensen (DK).
In addition to these consortia, there are three consortia which coordinate the efforts between the more topically focused consortia:
- Brittle ice / core processing consortium (planning the optimal core handling and processing strategies): chair Bo Vinther (DK), co-chair J.P. Steffensen (DK).
- Surface program umbrella consortium (coordinating the surface measurement programs for optimal sharing of equipment and traverse activities. co-chairs are having an overview of shallow/firn cores): chairs Hans-Christian Steen-Larsen (N) and chair Helle Kjær (DK), co-chairs Tobias Erhardt (CH) and Iben Koldtoft (DK).
- CFA umbrella consortium (coordinating the different continuous flow analysis measurements): chair: Hubertus Fischer (CH) and co-chairs Thomas Blunier (DK), Bruce Vaughn (US).
Contact the consortia (co-)chairs above or your national Steering Committee representative to hear about how to get involved in the scientific work.
