Shallow coring in Wilhelm II Land
Entry ID: ASAC_1109

Abstract: Shallow firn core data including oxygen isotope, hydrogen peroxide, electrical conductivity and firn density. Firn core data were collected on two separate trips - hence the two sets of dates. The site numbering system and a site map are provided in the datasets available at the URLs given below.

The fields in this dataset are:
oxygen isotopes
core site
date drilled
total depth
elevation (m)
core section
length (m)
mid-core depth
