Title: Analysis of chemistry in 6 shallow cores from Northern Greenland

Abstract: This report examines a series of 6 short firn cores collected from the Greenland Ice Sheet in May 2015. The cores were collected by hand using a IDDO drill during the traverse from NEEM to NGRIP and analysed at the Centre for Ice and Climate using the institutions continuous flow analysis system. More specifically, this report aims to present a number of different ice core proxies measured from the cores, their similarities, differences and causes.
