Group: Summary

   This dataset includes major ion, trace element, microparticle and oxygen 
   isotope (δ18O) data for a snowpit dug and sampled in December 2008 near 
   the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) Divide ice core site. The pit was dug 
   approximately 4 km upwind from the drilling arch in the clean air sector of 
   camp. Sampling was done using trace element clean techniques and all depths 
   are in water equivalents. 

   Data are available via FTP in ASCII text (.txt) format.
