Group: Summary

   Glaciochemical and accumulation rate records developed from four ice cores in 
   central West Antarctica are used to reconstruct former atmospheric circulation 
   patterns in this region for the last 40 years with extended records (150-250 
   years) at two sites. The sites lie on a 200 km traverse from 82 degrees 22 
   minutes south, 119 degrees 17 minutes west to 81 degrees 22 minutes south, 107 
   degrees 17 minutes west, gaining elevation from 950 to 1930 m. The 
   glaciochemical records represent the major ionic species present in Antarctic 
   snow: sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, nitrate, and sulfate.
