There is a discrepancy between the soil age and the ice core data. The
ice cores from Greenland show roughly 100,000 years worth of ice,
indicating that either Greenland ice melts very rapidly compared to
Antarctic ice or it melted off almost completely during the last
interglacial.

Perhaps that particular location remained ice covered. Remember, the
cores are taken at specific spots. A hundred miles away the results
might be quite different. Same for the soil sample--they didn't sample
all the soil everywhere under the Greenland icecap, they sampled it
under the highest part of the ice sheet.
