Today was an uneventful day of drilling, which is a good thing. Core quality today was excellent, as it was yesterday too. We filled 5 ISC boxes today. The 4-inch drill drills 10-cm diameter ice cores and we pack 6 ice cores in each ISC box. The ISC boxes are "Insulated Shipping Containers", and hence the term "ISC".

Drill depth: 54.53 meters
