Byrd and Siple Dome CO2 data on the GICC05 timescale (9--21 ka)
Entry ID: Byrd-SipleDome-CO2-GICC05

Abstract: Antarctic ice cores provide clear evidence of a close coupling between variations in Antarctic temperature and the atmospheric concentration of CO2 during the glacial/interglacial cycles of at least the past 800-thousand years. Precise information on the relative timing of the temperature and CO2 changes can assist in refining our understanding of the physical processes involved in this coupling. ... View entire text
