Vostok Ice Core Data

Stable Isotopes and Temperature Reconstructions
Isotopes of Hydrogen and Oxygen have been used to develop Earth temperature histories
extending over 400,000 years.
Carbon Dioxide
Trapped gas bubbles record the history of atmospheric CO2 concentrations for over 400,000 years.
Trapped gas bubbles record the history of atmospheric Methane concentrations.
Molecular oxygen to nitrogen ratios (O2/N2) and orbitally tuned Vostok chronology
Trapped gas bubbles record the history of atmospheric N2O concentrations plus d15N and d18O.
Vostok Timescales
Several Depth/Age interpretations for the Vostok cores have been published.
Dust Flux and Concentrations, Helium Isotopes from Interplanetary Dust
Atmospheric and interstellar dust are recorded in the Vostok cores.
Chemistry Data
Sodium Ion concentrations in Vostok Ice
In-situ 14C Data
