GISP2 Ions - B core (0-200 Meters), 700 Years

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This is the ion data set produced by the Glacier Research Group for the
GISP2 B core drilled at the GISP2 site during the summer of 1989. The
data is bi-yearly, a combination of averages (approximately 2 year
averages) from the detailed sections analyzed and bi-years sections cut
between the detailed sections. Concentration values for each sample are
listed along with the top and bottom depth for each sample. Depths are in
meters, concentration values are in micrograms/kilogram (ppb). When no
data is available, the code 999999 appears.
