Vostok Terminations II, III, and IV Argon and Nitrogen Isotopes
Entry ID: Severinghaus_OPP_01-25468

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set includes argon 40/36 and nitrogen 15/14 measurements across three
glacial terminations from the Vostok Ice Core, Antarctica. These data are
thought to provide an indirect proxy for the timing of temperature change,
although the exact mechanism is not yet clear. They are useful for comparison
with carbon dioxide concentration data, because they directly give ... View entire text
