GISP2 Stable Isotopes (Deuterium, Deuterium Excess, and Oxygen)


The data compiled here consist of Greenland Ice Sheet Project Two (GISP2) deuterium, deuterium excess, and oxygen isotope values measured at the Stable Isotope Laboratory, Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTAAR), University of Colorado as of August, 2004. The data are contained in two data files, with resolutions of 1.4 to 0.3 meters and 0.5 meters, respectively. The depth intervals of the measured data range from 91.49 to 1600.606 meters, and from 1600 to 3039 meters. The vast majority of data are from the ISO-1 piece, with some gaps filled using the main core archive.
