Group: Summary

   This data set is a continuous, high-resolution record of biogenic sulfur 
   (methanesulfonate, known as MSA and CH3SO3-) in the 1000 m deep Siple Dome A 
   (SDMA) core, covering 100,000 to 20 years BP. The analysis was done on between 
   August 2002 and November 2003 at the University of California, Irvine. 
   Investigators used a mass spectrometer to measure methanesulfonate. 
   Measurements are given as MSA concentration at various depths. Estimated age 
   of the ice at each depth is also given.

   This project was a part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet Cores (WAISCORES) 
   project for deep ice coring in West Antarctica. WAISCORES is supported by the 
   Office of Polar Programs, National Science Foundation (NSF).
