Temperature of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet
This data set contains temperature-depth profile measurements taken in 22 boreholes drilled on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, which exhibit two distinctly different thermal states of basal ice: a warm state and a relatively colder state. The data are available in ASCII Text Format (.txt) and Portable Document Format (PDF) via FTP.
