CO2 concentrations for the Holocene portion of the Taylor Dome core were obtained jointly at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego and at the Physics Institute, University of Bern, Switzerland. The timescale used in the file gives gas ages, from the methane record of Brook et al. (1999). This is the same gas timescale used to constrain the st9810 timescale of Steig et al. (1999); it is offset from st9810 by the difference (deltaAge) between the trapped gas and the ice that surrounds it.
