Figure from Acquisition of borehole temperature measurements from Taylor Dome and the dry valleys for paleoclimate reconstruction

Figure 2. Temperatures recorded in the DVDP 11 borehole (Taylor Valley) during 1977 by Decker and Bucher (dots) and during December 1995 (solid line). The temperature increase in the upper 70 m of the hole since 1977 indicates mean-annual temperatures have increased about 1 K in lower Taylor Valley over the last several decades.
