General Information

A 10.2 cm diameter, 82 m long core drilled in 2003 near Summit, Greenland, to investigate annual accumulation over recent centuries in central Greenland. The ice core was analyzed by CFA by Joe McConnell and annually dated based on multiple seasonal markers, including hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), total sulfur, lead, and sea-salt and dust tracers (for example, Na, Mg, Ca). The period of record in the Sandy core is 1753-2003 (Banta and McConnell, 2007). Only a small section of the core remains in the archive.
