Based on the template developed for the WAIS Divide Ice Core project

  • [1] see WAIS Divide Borehole Locations table.
  • In this step, ice core project leaders will register an International Geo Sample Number IGSN for the following data. If all required fields are available, the data set automatically becomes compliant with the Ice core site certificate.
  • The registered number will be used as a Parent IGSN number for all ice core samples from this location.
