Summary
Abstract: Data consists of Grain radius from selected samples of the EPICA Dome
C ice cores, 110-3100 metres depth.

Vertical thin sections were prepared in the field at a periodicity of
10 m, then digitized and analyzed using an image analysis procedure,
to determine the mean grain radius.
