Group: Summary

   This data set consists of sodium (Na) and magnesium (Mg) concentrations versus 
   depth in seven ice cores that were obtained by the Norwegian-U.S. Scientific 
   Traverse of East Antarctica during the International Polar Year (IPY) 
   2007-2009. Additional glaciochemical analyses and a final depth-age scale will 
   be added as these data become available.

   Data are available via FTP.
