The observations are essentially continuous cross-overs for interpretations of records from different types in time and cover an altitude range of roughly 5-30 km of climate archives, high resolution studies from modeling, and 55-95 km depending on season and time of day. In instrumental records or archive signals from ice cores, preparing the archive, data were carefully checked for marine and lake sediments, tree rings, historical chronicles, consistency and a special effort was made to optimize the cave deposits, faunal growth rings, snow, and glaciers. retrieval of data from altitudes with low signal-to-noise Additional information may be obtained from K.
