Summary
Abstract: This data set contains the GISP2 major ion concentrations in parts per billion
(ppb) by mass. Blanks (999999) in the H2O2 data indicate samples that were not
analyzed. Blanks in other chemical species represent samples below detection
limits.

Firn samples were cleaned in the freezer by hand-scraping and placed in a
pre-cleaned container. The pieces were kept frozen until analyzed. All samples
below 60 meters were cleaned by rinsing with pure (milli-Q) water immediately
prior to melting, also in a pre-cleaned container. The data has not been edited
to remove possibly contaminated samples.

Ion species include:
Na
NH4
K
Mg
Ca
Cl
NO3
SO4
H2O2
