Inilchek Glacier, Kyrgystan

Click here to obtain Inilchek Glacier data.
A 14.4-m-long firn core was recovered from the Inilchek Glacier (Tien Shan Mountains, Kyrgyzstan; 5100-m elevation) in 1998 by Kruetz et al. Data include major element (Al, Fe, Ca, and S), rare earth element (REE), and isotopic (d34S and d18O) data. These data provide evidence of dust source regions and atmospheric circulation patterns in central Asia.
