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
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.
