Summary
Abstract: This data set contains results from a study of the triple isotope composition
of atmospheric O2, obtained by analysis of the GISP2 and Siple Dome ice cores.
Results are expressed as D17O, where

D17O = [d17O - 0.521 d18O] x 1000.

The primary application of the data is in reconstructing the past rates of
planetary productivity. In most physical and chemical processes, 17O is
fractionated ... View entire text
