Twenty-Three Century-scale Ice Core Records of Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) from West Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0392

Abstract: This data set contains sub-annually resolved concentrations of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), snow, firn and ice from 23 sites on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS. Data were obtained from 2000 to 2003 during the US International Trans-Antarctic Scientific Expedition (US ITASE) deployments. Cores were drilled approximately every 100-300 kilometers down to depths of up to 120 meters. H2O2 was measured ... View entire text
