NOAA Paleoclimatology Program


This site is home to a web-based browse and visualization tool for ice core data archived by the World Data Centers for Paleoclimatology and for Glaciology. This page offers several different ways of finding specific ice core data sets. Browsing can be done by project, by data type, geographically (via the Webmapper applet) and searches are possible by variable, PI and other criteria. Clickable regional maps a java applet which will display detailed maps of ice core data locations, and allow users to display, graph, and download ice core data.
