Visible Stratigraphic Dating, Siple Dome and Upstream C Cores
Entry ID: NSIDC-0121

Abstract: This data set is part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet cores (WAISCORES) project, an NSF-funded project to understand the influence of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet on climate and sea level change. WAISCORES researchers acquired and analyzed ice cores from the Siple Dome, in the Siple Coast region, West Antarctica.

This data set includes melt layers and annual layer data for Siple Dome cores A ... View entire text
