Jan 22, 2013 · The North Greenland Eemian Ice Drilling project or NEEM, led by the Niels Bohr Institute, is an international project with participants from 14 countries. After four years of deep drilling, the team has drilled ice cores through the more than 2.5 kilometer thick ice sheet. rived statistics for Bedmap2 show that the volume of ice contained in the Antarctic ice sheet (27millionkm3) and its potential contribution to sea-level rise (58m) are simi-lar to those of Bedmap1, but the mean thickness of the ice sheet is 4.6% greater, the mean depth of the bed beneath the grounded ice sheet is 72m lower and the area of ice
