Style Guidelines for WAIS Divide Ice Core Publications

Please follow the Style Guidelines for WAIS Divide Ice Core Publications (.pdf) when preparing your graphs, talks, and publications.

WAIS Divide Metadata Form

In an effort to standardize the information that is collected at the time of data submission to the SCO we have created the WAIS Divide Metadata Form (.doc). Every time you submit a data set to the SCO you must also submit a completed WAIS Divide Metadata Form. If you have questions about how to fill out the form, contact Joe Souney.

Sample Request Form - Main Core

Investigators from the United States need to submit a proposal to the National Science Foundation (NSF) to obtain ice samples or access the borehole. If you are planning on submitting a proposal to NSF, you must contact the WAIS Divide Science Coordination Office (SCO) before submitting your proposal and obtain a letter from the SCO stating that your proposal is consistent with the WAIS Divide operation plan. In order to initiate this process, investigators must submit the Sample Request Form (.doc) to the SCO. Sample requests may take up to 6 weeks to process depending on the complexity of the request and other workloads. For reference, you can download the WAIS Divide Deep Core Cut Plan (.jpg) to see the typical sample cuts made on the ice core. For more information read the Involvement/Proposals page.

Sample Request Form - Replicate Core

If you want samples from the replicate cores, fill out the REPLICATE CORE Sample Request Form and send it to the SCO and Jeff Severinghaus. Use the depth values from the main core. We will figure out the corresponding depths in the replicate cores. The PIs of the replicate core project will have priority during the sample allocation process.
