Antarctic Ice Sheet Surface Oxygen Isotope Values

  • V. I. Morgan (a1)

Abstract

Collected data on the mean annual surface values for δ 18O over Antarctica have been tabulated and also presented in map form. An additional map shows contours of constant δ 18O values.

Teneurs en isotope de l’oxygène à la surface de la calotte glaciaire antarctique. Les données recueillies sur les valeurs annuelles moyennes en surface pour la teneur en δ 18O dans l’ensemble de l’Antarctique ont été compilées et sont également présentées sous forme cartographique. Une carte supplémentaire montre les lignes d’égales teneurs en δ 18O.

Zusammenfassung

Werte für Sauerstoff-Isotope an der Oberfläche der antartischen Eisdecke. Datenmaterial über die mittleren jährlichen Oberflächenwerte von δ 18O in Antarktika wurde tabuliert und auch in kartographischer Form dargestellt. Eine zusätzliche Karte enthält Linien konstanter δ 18O-Werte.
