Group: Summary

   This data set is part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Cores (WAISCORES) 
   project, an NSF-funded project to understand the influence of the West 
   Antarctic Ice Sheet on climate and sea level change. WAISCORES researchers 
   acquired and analyzed snow pit and core samples from the Siple Dome, in the 
   Siple Coast region, West Antarctica. This data set includes glaciochemical 
   spatial variability data for six Siple Dome snow pits. Samples involved 
   measuring hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and formaldehyde 
   (HCHO) in the air, snow, firn, and ice via suppressed ion chromatography. The 
   data can be used to interpret changes in concentrations of these species 
   recorded in ice cores. Data in this collection were obtained during two 
   Antarctic field seasons in 1994 to 1995 and 1996 to 1997. Data are available 
   via FTP in tab-delimited ASCII text (.dat, .txt) file format.
