Vostok Ice Core Chemistry, Timescale, Isotope, and Temperature Data
Entry ID: NSIDC-0242

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains ice core chemistry, timescale, isotope, and temperature data analyzed by several investigators. In January 1998, the collaborative ice-drilling project between Russia, the United States, and France at the Russian Vostok station in East Antarctica yielded the deepest ice core ever recovered, reaching a depth of 3,623 m. Preliminary data indicate the Vostok ice-core record extends through four climate cycles, with ice slightly older than 400 kyr.
