Summary
Abstract: Atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide (CO2) have been derived
from ice cores in Antarctica.

Atmospheric CO2 concentrations for Siple Station (West Antarctica)
were derived from measurements of air bubbles in a 200-m ice core
drilled during the summer 1983-1984. The core was drilled by the Polar
Ice Coring Office in Nebraska and the Physics Institute at the
University of Bern (Switzerland). ... View entire text
