Abstract : Over 100 samples taken at about 15-m intervals in the portion of the Camp Century ice core between 70- and 1360-m depths were analyzed for their Na(+), K(+), Ca(2+) and Mg(2+) contents by atomic absorption spectroscopy. Based on independent stable isotope analyses these maxima occurred over the last third of the Wisconsin glaciation.
