Perforación con Vapor

Esta es una técnica de campo utilizada por los glaciólogos para perforar agujeros en el hielo glaciar con el fin de insertar estacas de ablación. La ablación de nieve y hielo, que puede utilizarse para determinar el balance de masa del glaciar, se determina midiendo los cambios en la altura de los postes de una red.

Una caldera de tubos verticales conectados se calienta con un quemador de propano. El vapor producido se envía a una punta de perforación, que lo inyecta directamente en el hielo.
