Group: Summary

   Time series of tiltmeter observations (tilt about two horizontal axes in 
   microradians) for a 34 day period on iceberg C16 while it was aground near 
   Ross Island in late 2001 to early 2002. Data shows tilts associated with 
   differential basal melting of the iceberg, tidal motion and short-term tilts 
   induced by iceberg tremor phenomena triggered by collisions between B15A and 
   C16. The sample rate was 5 seconds. Data are available in comma-delimited 
   ASCII format. Data are available via FTP.
