ARCHIVE OF PALEOCLIMATIC DATA FROM NON POLAR ICE CORE

The aim of the NEXTDATA Project - WP2.3, is the implementation of paleo-climatic database of non polar ice core of the word. This archive includes non polar ice core information from NOAA and NICL databases as well as data published in the scientific literature and available in the DISAT GEOMATIC LAB repository. For each core, drilling site, altitude, core length, year, data source holder name, drilling methodology are archived. For cores analyzed and reported in previous publications, paleo-climatic proxies (physical, chemical data characterization) are also provided.

Monte Rosa Ice cores

This archive includes non polar ice cores information from Monte Rosa glaciers available in the DISAT GEOMATIC LAB repository. A total of 11 ice cores were taken from 1976 to 2000 in different location: 10 on Colle Gnifetti, 1 on Colle del Lys

PURUOGANGRI Ice Cap Perforation project

Two ice cores (118.4 and 214.7 m in length) were collected in 2000 from the Puruogangri ice cap in the center of the Tibetan Plateau (TP) in a joint US-Chinese collaborative project. These cores yield paleoclimatic and environmental records extending through the Middle Holocene. The high-resolution Puruogangri climate record since AD 1600 details regional temperature and moisture variability.

Eclipse Icefield second perforation

Two Icecores (345 m and 130 m) were recovered in 2002, 100 m up the flow line from the 1996 drill site. All two cores were sampled continuously at high resolution for major ions and stable isotopes to establish a detailed chronology for the core. Sample resolution ranged from 6 to 15 cm for major ions and 2 to 15 cm for stable isotopes. Stringent core processing techniques were used to ensure samples were contamination-free at the ng/g level.

Archive of paleoclimatic data from marine sediment cores

The aim of the NEXTDATA Project - WP2.4, is the implementation of paleo-climatic database of marine sediment cores of the Mediterranean Sea. This archive includes marine sediment core information from NOAA and Seadatanet databases as well as data published in the scientific literature and available in the IAMC-CNR, Naples repository. For each core, the sampling device, water_depth, core length, year, data source holder, vessel and cruise name are archived. For cores analyzed and reported in previous publications, paleo-climatic biotic proxies (planktonic and benthonic foraminifera, calcareous nannoplankton, pollen, dinoflagellate, diatom) and abiotic proxies (stable isotopic data, paleomagnetism, petrophysical signal, lithological signature record, tephra layer) are also provided.
