At top are the tents for the base personnel and the tent covering the ice core drilling site. In the foreground are the containers for the buildings and telescopes for the new base. The ice core drilling program started in 1996. The new base was completed in 2005. It is over 1000 kilometres inland, high on the Antarctic plateau at an altitude of 3233 metres, at the location called Dome C. It is a permanent, all-year research station, the third to be built in Antarctica. It is jointly operated and run by France and Italy, carrying out meteorological and astronomical research.
