Title
Accumulation Rates from the WAIS Divide Ice Core
Abstract
These data are the accumulation rate history for the WAIS Divide ice core in central West Antarctica. The data are in two parts: 1) the annual accumulation rates for the past ~31ka and 2) the firn gas-based accumulation rates from 31-67ka.
