Entry ID

NSIDC-0128

Summary

This data set is part of the 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 ice cores from the Siple Dome, in the Siple Coast region, West Antarctica.

This data set includes annual layer data for Siple Dome ice cores A, B, and C, based on stratigraphy; thin-section images, and fabric data. The study included the analysis of more than 2500 crystallographic c-axes conducted on 50 thin sections from the main PICO core.
