Abstract : Thermal probes have been developed that can carry instrumentation packages into polar ice sheets for geophysical investigations and long-term observations by remote measurement. They are self-contained, surface-controlled devices. During development work at USA CRREL problems with materials, fabrication, and heat transfer analysis were solved. The Philberth probe, named after its inventor, demonstrated its performance capability in Greenland. The pendulum probe was a further development with increased performance and versatility. (Author)
