Glaciers provide a unique medium for the study of palaeoatmos-pheric chemistry1–3, particularly in polar glaciers where chemical records may extend for at least several hundred thousand years. Glaciochemical records from remote, high-latitude areas provide a regional- to global-scale integration of past atmospheric chemistry. These records yield information regarding climate change4–7, volcanic events8,9 and solar activity10, as well as the effect of human activities11,12. Although gaseous… CONTINUE READING
