Abstract null null To date, hot-water drilling with its fast penetration rate is the most advanced technology to access rapidly subglacial environments through the thick ice in the Antarctica and Greenland. During deep hot-water drilling, it is important to remove the residual hot water from the drill hose when drilling stops; otherwise, the residual hot water in the hose will quickly cool down and be frozen in less than 1 h at −20 °C if no mitigation measures taken. The frost heaving force gene...

Hot-point drills have been widely used for drilling boreholes in glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets. A hot-point drill melts ice through the thermal head at its bottom end. Penetration occurs through a close-contact melting (CCM) process, in which the ice is melted, and the meltwater is squeezed out by the exerted force applied on the thermal head. During the drilling, a thin water film is formed to separate the thermal head from the surrounding ice. For the hot-point drill, the rate of penetrati...

Abstract Ice drilling systems with near-bottom hot water circulation can be used for many challenging scientific tasks in the study of ice sheets, glaciers, and subglacial environments. These systems melt ice using water jets heated directly at the bottom of the hole, thus eliminating the use of long heavy hoses and surface pumps. To investigate the influence of the drill tip shape and nozzle diameter on the drilling process, a simplified laboratory prototype of the drill was designed and tested...
