WAISCORES Snow Pit Chemistry, Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0420

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
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 snow pit and core samples from the Siple Dome, in the Siple Coast region, West Antarctica. This data set includes glaciochemical spatial variability data for ... View entire text
