Beyond EPICA ice core age-depth profile

This interactive program allows you to explore the latest depth, age, and age resolution results from the model developed by Ailsa Chung. Input one of the 3 parameters and the other 2 will be displayed for that given point in the ice core.

Ailsa Chung (DeepIce project - ESR 14) has been developing a 1D numerical model which is constrained by radar horizons. The model produces an age-depth profile along the radar line and therefore gives us a prediction of what we might find at the drill site.
