Borehole Optical Stratigraphy Modeling, Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0468

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set consists of scripts and code designed for modeling the properties of boreholes in polar ice sheets, under a range of variations in the borehole geometry, firn layering, and camera pointing and position. The data set contains two folders. One includes two perl scripts and a piece of C code, along with directions for setting up and running a Monte Carlo model of photons traveling to ...
