Detailed Description

A relationship between the age of the ice and the grain size from the Vostok core.

A data set is interpolated here. The intention is that the softness of the ice has nontrivial dependence on its age, through its grain size, because of variable dustiness of the global climate. The grain size is partly determined by at which point in the glacial cycle the given ice fell as snow.

The data is from [DeLaChapelleEtAl98] and [LipenkovEtAl89]. In particular, Figure A2 in the former reference was hand-sampled with an attempt to include the `‘wiggles’' in that figure. Ages of the oldest ice (>= 300 ka) were estimated in a necessarily ad hoc way. The age value of 10000 ka was added simply to give interpolation for very old ice; ages beyond that get constant extrapolation. Linear interpolation is done between the samples.
