Abstract:

This data set contains measurements of the orientation and deformation of the crystal c-axes (fabric) of ice core samples collected from the Siple Dome Ice Core A, Antarctica (81°S, 148°W) between 22.764 m and 992.385 m in depth. The instrument used for the measurements consists of a fiber-optic white light source, one fixed black-and-white video camera, and four rotation stages. The data are in ASCII tab-delimited text format and are available via FTP.

Purpose:

Scientific Research
