Description:
Abstract:
These data are a compilation of the detailed solid ice laser light scattering (LLS) files. They are essentially 1 meter averages (every 500 data points of the LLS files averaged) above 2100 meters and 1/2 meter averages below 2100 meters. There are several gaps in the data throughout the record.
