Multiple Isotope Analysis of Sulfate in the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divide Ice Core
Entry ID: NSIDC-0479

Abstract: This data set contains measurements of multiple sulfur and oxygen isotopes from sulfates, from an ice core drilled at the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Divide site in 2005. The initial sulfate measurements, analyzed in 2008 from the 70 meter WAIS 2005A core, are 12 meter averages and span the pre-industrial to industrial transition, from the late 1700s to 2005. This data set is part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Divide Ice Core (WAISCORES) project.

Data are available via FTP in Microsoft Excel (.xlsx) format.
