GISP2 * Latitude: 72.970000 * Longitude: -38.800000 * Date/Time: 1990-01-01T00:39:00 * Elevation: 3208.0 m * Recovery: 3053 m * Campaign: GISP * Basis: Sampling/drilling ice * Method/Device: Drilling/drill rig (DRILL) * Comment: GISP2 is a combination of the shallow B and the deeper D core; about 200 ka
The timescale includes revisions by D. A. Meese as of Sept 1994. Depths below 167 meters are those of the D core; above 167 meters the depths are those of the B core + 1.09 meters. Layer count ages at top depths where 0 BP represents AD 1950 SUMMER to AD 1949 SUMMER. d18O measured at the Quaternary Isotope Laboratory, Univ of Washington.
