Summary
Abstract: Penny Ice Cap ice core and snowpit microparticle data.

This dataset contains a summary of microparticle measurements from snowpits
and a 334-m long ice core (P95) from the Penny Ice Cap, Baffin Island, Canada.
Snowpits were excavated in 1994-1995, and core P95 was drilled in April-May
1995.

The P95 core was dated back to 7900 yr ago (319 m) by ... View entire text
