Ice cores reveal a slow decline in atmospheric oxygen over the last 800,000 years

(Princeton University) Princeton University researchers have compiled 30 years of data to construct the first ice core-based record of atmospheric oxygen concentrations spanning the past 800,000 years, according to a paper in the journal Science.
