Spiky fluctuations and scaling in high-resolution EPICA ice core dust fluxes

Data sets

Dust and calcium record in calculated for ice core EPICA Dome C F. Lambert, M. Bigler, J. P. Steffensen, M. A. Hutterli, and H. Fischer

Short summary
We analyze the statistical properties of the eight past glacial–interglacial cycles as well as subsections of a generic glacial cycle using the high-resolution dust flux dataset from the Antarctic EPICA Dome C ice core. We show that the high southern latitude climate during glacial maxima, interglacial, and glacial inception is generally more stable but more drought-prone than during mid-glacial conditions.
