Group: Summary

   This data set contains high-resolution digital images of thin and thick 
   sections cut from the 1003 meter Siple Dome A main ice core. The images are 
   useful for crystal size and orientation analysis and bubble size, shape, 
   distribution, and number density determinations. The data set contains several 
   generations of images, taken between June 1998 and May 2005. An accompanying 
   spreadsheet contains creation date information for each file.

   The data are available via FTP in Adobe Photoshop Document (.psd), and Tagged 
   Image File (.tif) formats. Additional information is provided as a Microsoft 
   Excel (.xls) spreadsheet.
