Depths of mid-summer as determined separately from ECM and visual stratigraphy in the GISP2-D ice core. Also given are calculated layer thicknesses (true and ice equivalent) and calculated accumulation rates. Factor A = (accum)/(layer thickness). Summ. refers to the calender year associated with the mid-summer pick.
