Climatic and Environmental Studies by Means of Ice Cores
Entry ID: CDA_AR_GLA_GLAF_ICE_CORES

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: More than twenty years ago the Instituto Antartico Argentino initiated
ice-cores studies in the Antarctic Peninsula. It also carried out the first
work of this type in the Argentine central Andes. Until recently, sample
analyses were performed in two prestigious French Laboratories in the frame of
a joint cooperation. However, installation of the Laboratorio de Estratigrafia
Glaciar y Geoquimica del Agua y de la Nieve, LEGAN (Laboratory of Glacier
Stratigraphy and Water and Snow Geochemistry), in Mendoza, Argentina, has been
recently finished and is equipped with the necessary facilities to develop
glaciochemical determinations. Among our principal scientific results we
mention the first isotopic-climatic reconstruction of the Antarctic Peninsula
for the last 400 years.
