Summary
Abstract: Sea ice and dust flux increased greatly in the Southern Ocean during the last
glacial period. Palaeorecords provide contradictory evidence about marine
productivity in this region, but beyond one glacial cycle, data were sparse.
Here we present continuous chemical proxy data spanning the last eight glacial
cycles (740,000 years) from the Dome C Antarctic ice core. These data constrain
winter ... View entire text

Description:  Measured concentrations from the EPICA Dome C ice core. Data are on an ice
depth scale. dD are averaged over 3.85-m sections; chemical concentrations are
averaged over 2.2-m sections. See:
