Entry ID: CDIAC_CH4_BYRD_DYE3

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Atmospheric concentrations of CH4 were extracted from the 2,184-m ice core from
Byrd Station (Antarctica) for the period 550 - 51,100 BP in 1967-68 by
the U.S. Cold regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. Data were also
obtained from 14 ice samples from the 2,037-m ice core taken at Dye 3 in
Greenland for the period 3,400 - 100,000 BP during 1979-81 as part of
an international collaboration ... View entire text
