Summary
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 (81S, 148W) 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.

Quality Many of the vertical sections were not mounted vertically in the
instrument for various technical reasons; therefore, the pattern of
c-axes is actually rotated from the vertical. The mount orientation of
the samples is given in a separate file titled 'sample orientation.doc.'
