This Franco-Italian station has been built in the heart of the Antarctic plateau, on the Dôme C site, at an altitude of 3233 metres, of which 3200 metres is ice. It a unique place, entirely dedicated to science.
The 3270 metre drilling called Epica, has enabled climates from up to 800 000 years ago to be decoded. As well as glaciology, other activities are also developed on the site. The CNRS Image team also follows astronomers and seismologists in their work.
The beginning of February will see the back of summer technicians and researchers, and only 13 Italian and French researchers will winter there. They will stay in this remote and extreme world, outside of time and place, for nearly 10 months.
