Would you please tell me where dome C is in the Antarctica? Also, what type of machinery is used and how it removes a two mile long ice plug. I would like to know more about carbon monoxide and methane it seems they are not at all good for the environment. Take it easy on me I'm new to all this I do find it interesting and would like very much to understand as much as I can with some help. Thank you.
