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
d18O) data. These
data provide evidence of dust source regions and
atmospheric circulation patterns in central Asia.
