Summary
Abstract: This collection includes surface snow sample, snow pit, and ice core data from summer of 1984 in Greenland (location - 65 degrees 6 minutes north, 44 degrees 52 minutes west, 2625 m a.s.l.). The data describe concentrations of major ions (Cl, Ca, Mg, K, Na, NO3, SO4), iron +3 (Fe) and oxygen isotopes (18O). Samples were obtained by the Glacier Research Group (GRG) and analyzed at a lab at the University of New Hampshire (UNH).
