RECAP – University of Copenhagen

The main goal of the RECAP project is to retrieve and analyze a high quality ice core from the Renland ice cap, drilled all the way to bedrock.
A 7 mill. kr Sapere Aude grant from the Danish Research Council to Associate Professor Bo M. Vinther funds the Danish contribution to RECAP. The US National Science Foundation and the Alfred Wegener Institute provide air support for RECAP, while the project logistics and drilling is managed by the Centre for Ice and Climate, Denmark
