Summary
Abstract: Laser Light Scattering (LLS) from meltwater was used to obtain dust
concentrations along the top 120 m of the GISP2 B core. In this technique, the
intensity of light scattered at 90 degrees from the meltwater sample is
proportional to the amount of dust suspended in the meltwater. The resulting
dust profile was then converted from depth to age using the GISP2 depth-age
scale (Meese et al., 1997, The Greenland Ice Sheet Project 2 depth-age scale:
Methods and results, Journal of Geophysical Research 102:26411-26423). Details
of the LLS from Meltwater technique are given in Ram et al., 1994.
