GISP2 Solid Ice Laser Light Scattering (LLS) Dust, 111 KYrBP -12 KYrBP
Entry ID: NOAA_NCDC_PALEO_GISP2LLS

[ Get Data ]

Summary
Abstract: These data are a compilation of the detailed solid ice laser light scattering
(LLS) files. They are essentially 1 meter averages (every 500 data points of
the LLS files averaged) above 2100 meters and 1/2 meter averages below 2100
meters. There are several gaps in the data throughout the record.
