Description :
The AA. have studied a 33.7 m deep ice core from a small polythermal Scandinavian ice cap to determine whether it is possible to recover pre-20th century climatic information from the glacier. Results demonstrate that ice cores from glaciers in this climatic environment can be useful in revealing environmental conditions from climatically colder periods and yield pre-industrial benchmark values for chemical loading and oxygen isotopes, but that hiatuses complicate the depth-age relationship.
