Temporal Coverage
Start Date: 1988-01-01
Stop Date: 2000-03-06
Quality The cores were dated using multi-species annual layer counting and combined into one record (see Palmer et al., JGR 106, 2001)

The dating scale is known as LD1 (see van Ommen et al., Annals of Glaciol., 39, 2004, in press)

This dating scale has been updated in May 2007 to add one year around Tambora region - it is the latest and best dating as of September 2010

The dates provided in temporal coverage are approximate only and cover the span of years over which the ice cores were collected.
