Group: Summary

   This data set includes measurements of snow and firn temperature and 
   permeability collected between November 1998 and June 1999 at Siple Dome. The 
   physical characteristics of snow determine the nature of air-snow exchange 
   processes, which in turn affect chemical records in ice cores. Thus a better 
   understanding of the physical properties of snow will improve interpretation 
   of ice core records of atmospheric composition.

   Data are available via ftp in both ASCII and Excel formats.
