Ice Core Paleoclimatology Research Group

Byrd Polar Research Center , Ohio State University

This site, hosted by Ohio State University, contributes to our understanding of the complex interactions within the Earth's coupled climate system through the collection and study of a global array of ice cores. These acquisitions provides high resolution climatic and environmental histories that will include ice core histories from Africa, Antarctica, Bolivia, China, Greenland, Peru, Russia and the United States. The project makes it possible to study processes linking the Polar Regions to the lower latitudes where human activities are most intense. These ice core records contribute prominently to the Earth's paleoclimate record, the ultimate yardstick against which the significance of present and projected anthropogenic effects will be assessed. Images, data sets, publications and research projects are linked to the home page.
