Group: Summary

   At the Siple Dome area of Antarctica, much of the ice flow is vertical, which 
   causes vertical ice deformation. To measure this phenomenon, the investigators 
   used a method known as vertical strain rate. This project was a part of the 
   West Antarctic Ice Sheet Cores (WAISCORES) project for deep ice coring in West 
   Antarctica. WAISCORES is supported by the Office of Polar Programs (OPP), 
   National Science Foundation (NSF).

   This data set consists of a table of long-term average strain rates measured 
   between 1999 and 2002 at Siple Dome, Antarctica. The measurements were taken 
   in hot-water boreholes by bridge gauges. Data are available in tab-delimited 
   ASCII text format or PDF via FTP.
