The goal was to survey two potential drill sites in order to help plan for the drilling system and to understand the present day sedimentation regime. Field data were athered in January 2003, through access holes 0.6 m wide made with the AWl hot water hilling system. The two sites lie 5 and 12 km east of the shelf edge near Scott Base. They were covered by ice 70 and 143 m thick, and the sea floor was 926 and 923 m below sea level respectively.
