Summary
Abstract: This data set contains the volcanic sulfate record in the GISP2 core on the
Meese/Sowers timescale. Each sample is approximately bi-annual for the last
~12,000 years with a consistent increase in the time covered by each sample to
around 50 years/sample at 110,000 years ago. The volcanic sulfate record is
derived by applying an empirical orthogonal function (EOF) analysis on the
