Atmospheric N2O Concentrations from GRIP Ice Cores During the Last Millenium

Abstract: This data set consists of nitrous oxide (N2O) concentrations derived
from two ice cores from Summit in Greenland: GRIP and EUROCORE. Both
records cover the past millenium and record pre-industrial N2O
concentrations. The data set consists of depth (m) age (yr AD), mean
N2O concentration (ppmv) and standard deviation (ppmv).
