Crete Ice Core

Download Data via FTP: Crete Ice Core Data

The Crete, Greenland ice cores consist of 8 short cores drilled in the 1984-85 field season as part of the post-GISP campaigns, and the original 400 meter Crete core drilled in 1974. Glaciological investigations were carried out in the field at eight sites. The sites are named A through H. The field work was a joint Swiss, Danish, and American venture as part of the Greenland Ice Sheet Project (GISP).

The Crete data files here are delta 18-O and accumulation data for all the cores with various sample resolutions. Snowpit isotope and accumulation data are also available. Please read the readme file for information on the filenames and a description of what is contained in each file
