TALos Dome Ice CorE

TALDICE (TALos Dome Ice CorE) is a 1620 m deep ice core drilled at Talos Dome, an ice dome located at the edge of the East Antarctic Plateau in the Ross Sea Sector. The TALos Dome Ice CorE (TALDICE) is a European ice core research project (Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland, United Kingdom) aimed at retrieving an ice core reaching back through the previous interglacials. The new TALDICE-deep1 chronology extends the climate record back to MIS 10.1-343,000 years (1548 m depth) and identifies the previous three interglacials MIS 5, 7 and 9 warm stages.
Logistical support was provided by the Italian Antarctic Programme (Programma Nazionale di Ricerche in Antartide). TALDICE ice core analysis contribute to decipher climate change mechanisms and help to explain past, present and future climate trends. The results obtained at Talos Dome complement, verify, and augment the palaeorecords collected at the "near-coastal sites" EPICA-DML, Berkner Island, Taylor Dome, Siple Dome and Law Dome DSS etc., and at other Antarctic deep drilling sites (EPICA-Dome C, Vostok, Dome Fuji).
