Group: Summary

   This data set contains concentrations of soluble chemical species (ions) 
   within a 120 m ice core retrieved at the South Pole station in 2001. The ice 
   core was dated with annual resolution using annual layer counting. 
   Investigators measured chemical species, ions, and volcanic deposits found in 
   the cores. The analysis was conducted at South Dakota State University between 
   2001 and 2003. Data are available in Microsoft Excel or ASCII text format via 
   FTP from NSIDC.
