Group: Summary

   This data set includes high-resolution ice core records from the Dry Valleys 
   region of Antarctica, and provides interpretations of interannual to 
   decadal-scale climate variability during the last 2000 years (late Holocene). 
   Intermediate-length ice cores (100 to 200 meters) were drilled at four sites 
   along transects in the Taylor and Wright valleys, and analyzed for stable 
   isotopes and major ions. The data set includes high-resolution ice core data 
   for each study site. It also includes mass balance, borehole temperature, and 
   snowpit data for each site, and Global Positioning System (GPS) velocity data 
   for some of the sites. Snow pit data from three additional sites in the same 
   region is also available. Data are available via FTP, in Microsoft Excel 
   (.xls), ASCII text (.txt), and Microsoft Word (.doc) file formats.
