Historical Methane (CH4) Record from the Vostok (Antarctica) Ice Core (157,000-26000 BP), in CDIAC, Trends '93
Entry ID: CDIAC_CH4_VOSTOK

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Atmospheric concentrations of methane (CH4) have been derived from ice
core data in Antarctica for nearly 160,000 years. The 2,083-m-long ice
core taken by the Soviet Antarctica Expedition at Vostok (East
Antarctica) has been analyzed for atmospheric CH4 concentrations from
the Holocene (as recent as 2569 years BP) and back through that last
glaciation and the ... View entire text
