Title
Antarctic Ice Core Tephra Analysis
Abstract
This dataset contains ice core tephra geochemical data from 5 temporal intervals in the RICE, WDC-06A, SPRESSO, and SPICE ice cores. The temporal intervals included are 1991 C.E., 1963 C.E., 1815 C.E., 1809 C.E., and 1257 C.E. These intervals are often analyzed for volcanic sulfate by ice core scientists. The volcanic events associated with these intervals caused global weather and climate phenomena and are often used by climate modelers as well to understand volcanic sulfate loading on the climate.
