Title
Atmospheric CO2 Trapped in the Ice Core from Siple Dome, Antarctica
Abstract
These data are CO2 concentrations of the air occulded in Siple Dome ice core, Antarctica. The study was conducted between January 2001 and March 2003 on a deep ice core from Siple Dome Core A, located at 81.66 S, 148.82 W.
