Continuous flow measurements of MSA in the WAIS Divide (WDC06A) ice core
Entry ID: saltzman_0839122

Abstract: This dataset includes depths, ages, and concentrations of methanesulfonate. The analyses were conducted using the DRI continous melter system with electrospray MS/MS detection in negative ion mode. Ages are assigned based on the WDC06A-7 chronology.

Description: The U.S research community is conducting a deep ice coring project in West Antarctica for studies of climate, ice sheet history and cryobiology. This project is collecting a deep ice core from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) ice flow divide and integrating approximately 40 separate but synergistic projects to analyze the ice and interpret the records. On December 31, 2011 the project reached its final depth goal of 3,405 meters, recovering the longest U.S. ice core to date from the polar regions.
