Atmospheric CO2 Trapped in the Ice Core from Siple Dome, Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0202

Abstract: These data are CO2 concentrations of the air occulded in Siple Dome ice core, Antarctica. The study was conducted between January 2001 and March 2003 on a deep ice core from Siple Dome Core A, located at 81.66 S, 148.82 W.
