Group: Summary

   This data set contains ice core chemistry, timescale, isotope, and temperature 
   data analyzed by several investigators. In January 1998, the collaborative 
   ice-drilling project between Russia,  the United States, and France at the 
   Russian Vostok station in East Antarctica  yielded the deepest ice core ever 
   recovered, reaching a depth of 3,623 m. Preliminary data indicate the Vostok 
   ice-core record  extends through four climate cycles, with ice slightly older 
   than 400 kyr.
