Summary
Abstract: About 80 ice core samples from Crete (drilled 1974) and Camp Century,
Greenland (drilled 1961, 1962 and 1963-1966) and Byrd Station,
Antarctica (drilled 1968 and 1971) were obtained from the National
Science Foundation's ice core facility at the State University of New
York at Buffalo (SUNY) for the period from 170 to 3140 BP. The CH4
concentrations 250 years ago and ... View entire text
