Correspondence. Evidence of the Kuwaiti oil fires in the Dasuopu glacier ice core, central Himalaya / Shichang Kang, Dahe Qin, Paul A. Mayewski, Shucheng Xie, Keqin Duan.

Title: Correspondence. Evidence of the Kuwaiti oil fires in the Dasuopu glacier ice core, central Himalaya / Shichang Kang, Dahe Qin, Paul A. Mayewski, Shucheng Xie, Keqin Duan.
Author(s): Kang, Shichang.

Duan, Keqin.
Date: 2001.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (2001.), Vol. 47(158) (2001)
Abstract: Presents records of δ¹⁸O, Ca²⁺, NO₃⁻ and SO₄²⁻ concentrations in a 15 m core collected in 1997 from 7000 m a.s.l. on Mount Xixiabangma. Records cover period 1988-97. A peak in SO₄²⁻ peak from 1991 is not accompanied by peaks in other records and is too early to be related to eruption of 1991 Mount Pinatubo. Concludes that SO₄²⁻ peak related to products of Kuwaiti oil fires set in early 1991 following the Persian Gulf War. The westerly jet transported these rapidly to the Himalayan region.
