Ion Concentrations from SPRESSO Ice Core, Antarctica

View Catalog Page

Entry ID

NSIDC-0471

Summary

This data set contains ion measurements from co-registered samples from the South Pole Remote Earth Science and Seismological Observatory (SPRESSO) ice core. The core was drilled during the 2002-2003 field season as part of the International Trans-Antarctic Science Expedition (ITASE). Samples were collected for ion chromatography, inductively coupled plasma sector field mass spectrometry and stable water isotope analysis. Parameters include measurements of ion concentrations in ice core samples.

The data are available via FTP in Microsoft Excel format (.xls).
