Group: Summary

   Major ion concentration values (Na, Mg, Ca, Cl, NO3, SO4, MSA) were analyzed 
   from a 20-meter ice core drilled in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica (location - 
   65 01' East, 75 00' South, elevation - 2,900 m a.s.l.). The core was drilled 
   during the austral summer 1991-1992. Major ion analysis was by ion 
   chromatography. The anions were analyzed on a Dionex AS4A column; the cations 
   on a Dionex CS12 column and MSA on a Dionex AS4 column. All used suppressed 
   chromatography. Using established protocols to prevent contamination, the core 
   was processed into 3-centimeter pieces by the Glacier Research Group at the 
   University of New Hampshire's Climate Change Research Center. The 3-cm pieces 
   were kept frozen until major ion analysis.
