The ice core dating software is a program designed to create a depth-age scale from ice core glaciochemical records. It reads data from comma separated files that contain depth vs. concentration of elements information. The user selects the elements he wants to plot, and then dynamically perform the dating process on the charts drawn.

The latest version of the ice core dating software is 1.2.0. You may download an executable jar from the releases page https://www.icecoredata.org/cci/software/download.html.

If you are a developer, you may find the following section to be helpful.

Developers

This section describes how to build the ice core dating software from source code. If you are not a programmer, then this section is most likely not for you.

Building

To generate the executable jar file, use Maven (Version 3 or greater). The following command will download and build the necessary files.

mvn clean package

If successful, the target directory will contain the following jar files (along with other items).

icecoredater-VERSION-SNAPSHOT.jar
icecoredater-VERSION-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar

These files have VERSION replaced with an actual version, for example, 1.2.0.

The first file icecoredater-VERSION-SNAPSHOT.jar is the ice core dating software compiled without its dependencies. The file icecoredater-VERSION-SNAPSHOT-jar-with-dependencies.jar is a single executable jar file, which is what most people will want to use.

Updating The Version

The version of the software may be updated by modifying the version tag inside of the pom.xml file. When the project is built, this version tag is automatically inserted into the icecoredating.properties file, which is then loaded by the system at run time. For example, the system uses the properties file to draw the version information on the splash screen. In addition, the pom.xml configuration uses the version to generate the final executable jar file.
