150 year MSA sea ice proxy record from Law Dome, Antarctica
Entry ID: law_dome_annual_msa


Summary
Abstract: This MSA record (1841-1995) is from a Law Dome ice core called "DSS" in East Antarctica. It was calibrated against satellite sea ice records and used to reconstruct sea ice extent prior to the satellite era. The following is taken from the abstract of the paper (Curran et al., 2003).

The instrumental record of Antarctic sea ice in recent decades does not reveal
a clear signature of warming ... View entire text
