Puruogangri Ice Cap, Tibetan Plateau

arrow bullet image Thompson et al. (2006) Puruogangri Ice Cap δ18O and Geochemical Data, Text or Excel
Two ice cores (118.4 and 214.7 m in length) were collected in 2000 from the Puruogangri ice cap in the center of the Tibetan Plateau (TP) in a joint US-Chinese collaborative project. These cores yield paleoclimatic and environmental records extending through the Middle Holocene. The high-resolution Puruogangri climate record since AD 1600 details regional temperature and moisture variability.

Puruogangri ice cap core location:
33°55'N, 89°05'E, 6070m elev.
