Cosmogenic Radionuclides in the WAIS Divide Ice Core
Entry ID: welten_0636964

Abstract: This dataset includes a record of the concentrations of the cosmogenic radionuclides, 10Be (half-life = 1.36 x 10^6 year) and 36Cl (3.0 x 10^5 year), in samples from the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Divide ice core, WDC06A. This work was conducted under the following NSF OPP awards, 0636964, 0839137 (PI Welten) and 0636815, 0839042 (PI Caffee). Radionuclide separations from ice samples were ... View entire text
