Methane and Carbonyl Sulfide Analysis of Siple Dome Ice Core Subsamples
Entry ID: NSIDC-0131

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set is part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet cores (WAISCORES) project, an NSF-funded project to understand the influence of the West Antarctic ice sheet on climate and sea level change. WAISCORES researchers acquired and analyzed ice cores from the Siple Dome, in the Siple Coast region, West Antarctica. Siple Dome ice cores were analyzed for methanesulfonate (MSA) and carbonyl sulfide ... View entire text
