Summary
Abstract: Sub-annually resolved ice core chemistry data from all over West Antarctica. Ions include Sodium (Na), Chloride (Cl), Sulfate (SO4 - including non-sea-salt SO4 and excess SO4), and annual accumulation rates (in Snow Water Equivalent - SWE). All concentrations are determined on an ion chromatograph and reported in micrograms per liter.
