Statistics: The main Taylor Dome core was drilled at latitude 7747'47'' S, longitude 15843'26'' E, elevation 2365 m in January 1994. Mean annual surface temperature at the site is -43C. Snow accumulation rate is 5 - 7 g cm-2a-1. Total depth at the drill site is 554 meters; basal temperature = -22C. Average depth of ice in the general vicinity ~800 m. Please cite Morse et al., 1999, for these statistics.
