Group: 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).
