Mt. Moulton Ice Trench Mass Spectrometry Data, Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0472

Abstract: This data set contains measurments from co-registered samples from a horizontal trench in the Mt. Moulton Blue Ice Area (BIA) in Antarctica. All 3795 co-registered samples were analyzed for their soluble major anion content by Ion Chromatography (IC) and for trace elements by inductively coupled plasma sector field mass spectrometry .

The data are available via FTP in Microsoft Excel format (.xls) and Microsoft Word document (.doc).
