Abstract:
The data set here consists of bubble-number densities in glacier ice, in units of bubbles per cubic centimeter, based on firn densification and grain-growth modeling under steady-state climate conditions. The leftmost column is accumulation rate in centimeters water equivalent, and the top row is temperature in Kelvin. Bubble-number densities can be used to constrain allowable temperature and accumulation-rate combinations, as described in Spencer, Alley, and Fitzpatrick, 2006, and in Fegyveresi, Alley, Spencer, and others 2011.
