Summary
Abstract: Data are included for the elemental and isotopic composition of
trapped gases in the A, E and F trenches. Specifically, the d15N of
N2, d18O of atm O2, dO2/N2, dAr/N2, total gas content and the methane
concentration are included for each block that was measured at Penn
State. The depths correspond to the distance along the A trench with
the E and F trench distances tied to the A trench via tephra layers.

Quality The quality of the data were determined by measuring samples from the
GISP II core which had been previously analyzed. In all cases, the
GISP II samples measured at Penn State were within one sigma
uncertainty of previously measured values at URI. Anayticall
precision for each entity is included in Sowers and Jubenville 2000.
