Record #112041:

Problems in ice core interpretation suitable for inverse methods / Richard B. Alley.

Title: Problems in ice core interpretation suitable for inverse methods / Richard B. Alley.
Author(s): Alley, Richard B.
Date: 1991.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1991.), Vol. 72(44, supplement) (1991)
Abstract: AGU Fall Meeting Program and Abstracts, December 9-13, 1991. Changes in past temperature, accumulation rate, and surface elevation of ice sheets are interpreted from ice-core measurements of isotopic ratio, annual layer thickness, bore-hole temperature, Be¹⁰ concentration, and total gas content. Transfer functions from indicator to climate all involve some uncertainty, and most involve dependence on multiple quantities. Best estimate of history of temperature, accumulation rate and surface elevation is that which satisfies constraints placed by all data sets and transfer functions. Inverse methods seem ideally suited to determination of that history.
