West Antarctica Ice Core and Climate Model Data
This data set will include ice core isotope data from Antarctic ice cores used in Steig and others, 2013, covering the last 200 to 2000 years. It will also include model output data from the ECHAM4.6 General Circulation model.
However, the data for this data set is not currently available. The only ice core isotope data we currently have is for the US ITASE Stable Isotope Data, Antarctica data set, NSIDC-0425. You can access this data set from the Get Data link at the top of this Web page.
