Group: Summary

   Micrometeorites dated between 1100 A.D. to 1500 A.D. were collected from the 
   bottom of the South Pole Water Well in December 1995. Element analyses of 181 
   cosmic glass spherule and micrometeorite samples are in ASCII text and Excel 
   spreadsheet format. Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) images of the spherules 
   and micrometeorites are in TIFF format. Data are available via ftp.
