Summary
Abstract: Two deep ice cores from central Greenland, drilled in the 1990s, have played a
key role in climate reconstructions of the Northern Hemisphere, but the oldest
sections of the cores were disturbed in chronology owing to ice folding near
the bedrock. Here we present an undisturbed climate record from a North
Greenland ice core, which extends back to 123,000 years before the present,
within the last ... View entire text
