Ion data set produced by the Glacier Research Group for the GISP2 D core, from 2 - 3040 m. 2 to 96 m is B core data. The remainder of data is from D core. D core samples were mechanically cleaned between 96-710m and 1370-1510m. All other samples were melted using a teflon coated aluminium apparatus which melted the center portion from a 3.5x3.5cm section of ice.
