Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) Dielectric Profiling (DEP) Data, NOAA/NCDC, WDC Paleoclimatology
Entry ID: NGDC_WDCA_GRIP_DEP

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains dielectric profiling (DEP) data from the Greenland Ice
Core Project (GRIP) ice core drilled at Summit, Greenland between 1990 and
1992. The data consists of depth (m) and sigma infinity (microsiemens/m).
Sigma infinity is the high-frequency limit of the conductivity, corrected to
-15 degrees C. The data start at 138 meters below the surface and continue to
the bottom of the core. Although a timescale is not given for the data, the
data extend to about 110 kyr BP.
