This is the second part of the 10Be data set for the WAIS Divide Core WDC06A ice core, from 1190.69 to 2453.25 m depth, produced by UC Berkeley's Space Sciences Laboratory and Purdue University's PRIME Laboratory. Each sample represents a continuous ice core section of ~3 m long (although they vary from 1.9 to 4.2 m). Experimental procedures for the extraction of 10Be from the ice samples and the measurement of 10Be by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) are described in Woodruff et al. (2013).
