      Researchers plan to drill at a height of 5150 meters, which is only 500 lower than the highest point of Mt. Elbrus, and will spend about two weeks at the drilling site.
      Core samples will be delivered to several laboratories, which will study air, trapped in ice during its formation. These studies are extremely interesting ice age can tell how concentration of carbon dioxide changed in Earths atmosphere with time.
