Summary
Abstract: A record of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) concentrations measured on the
EPICA (European Project for Ice Coring in Antarctica) Dome Concordia ice core
extends the Vostok CO2 record back to 650,000 years before the present (yr
B.P.). Before 430,000 yr B.P., partial pressure of atmospheric CO2 lies within
the range of 260 and 180 parts per million by volume. This range is almost 30%
smaller than that of the last four glacial cycles; however, the apparent
sensitivity between deuterium and CO2 remains stable throughout the six glacial
cycles, suggesting that the relationship between CO2 and Antarctic climate
remained rather constant over this interval. [from online documentation at WDC/
