Late Holocene precipitation record from Windmill Island lakes
Entry ID: ASAC_1223

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: Antarctic lake cores record a history of precipitation in the preservation of climate sensitive microbial communities. Comprehensive integration of our precipitation records with other climate proxies such as ice core temperature records and historical climate data are dependent upon accurate dating of this lake sediment.

Fourteen lakes and ponds of the Windmill Islands were sampled in 1998 for ... View entire text
