Summary
Abstract: Ice core records are very useful for determining past climate because they store a wide variety of proxies for climate forcing and climate response. Accurate dating of ice cores is crucial to making use of this information and cosmogenic radionucleides are a natural indicator for dating. Until recently, there was no approprate radiometric dating method for mountain glacier ice in the time range ... View entire text
