Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) Oxygen Isotope Data, NOAA/NGDC, WDC-A Paleoclimatology

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: This data set consists of detailed oxygen isotope (del 18O)
measurements from the 3029 m Summit Core in Greenland collected by the
Greenland Ice Core Project (GRIP) members. The isotope measurements
were made on 0.55 m sections of ice, and reported relative to the
interval and the midpoint of the section. The data presented here and
published in the references were produced by appending a series ... View entire text
