Overview

In the Linked Earth context, a working group (WG) is a self-organized coalition of knowledgeable experts, whose activities are governed herewith. This page is dedicated to the discussion of data and metadata standards for proxies based on glacier ice (see this page for a definition of the glacier ice archive), and aims to formulate a set of recommendations for such a standard.

Members of 'Ice Cores Working Group'

Specific tasks

We recommend that discussions focus on the following considerations, and explore potential commonalities.

For each observation type, we recommend:

  • structuring discussions around what scientific questions one would want to ask of the data
  • listing essential, recommended, and desired information for:
    • the measurements themselves
    • any inference made from the measurements (e.g. calibration to temperature)
    • the underlying uncertainties, and what those numbers correspond to (e.g. 1-sigma or 2-sigma?)
  • providing an ideal data table, so the community knows what to report and how to report it.
  • providing separate recommendations for new and legacy datasets, and for how to label measured and inferred variable (e.g. δD is measured, temperature is inferred)
  • thinking about how the rest of the paleoscience community, or other (non)scientists may make use of the data you describe.

Ice core projects are inherently collaborative in nature, and have thus developed mechanisms for data exchange, including some form of standards. We do not ask this WG to re-invent the wheel; if these standards are defined somewhere, please copy/paste freely here.

Note: Do not edit the polls (even for typos) once voting has started as it will reset the vote counts to zero. If a change needs to be made, make an annotation above the old poll (i.e., above the poll tags) and place the new poll below the first one.

Timescale construction

Discussion regarding timescales can also be found in the chronolgy working group page.

Is there a unified way to report on timescale construction? Should there be? What does a user need to know about the timescale was constructed to make the best use of the data?

Uncertainties

See the uncertainties working group for a discussion on how to report uncertainties in general.
