Dataset of µCT scans of young sea ice
The downloadable archive contains all scan data. Data collection, image processing, and analysis of metadata from sea ice are explained in the data description.
The size of the archive file is 97 GB. The uncompressed data are about 40% larger.

Video of the vertical evolution of a horizontal cross section (3.6 x 7.2 mm) of the sea ice brine pore space over a vertical distance of 5.4 mm. The crossover from low to high porosity is accompanied by the close-off of pores when the necks reach a critical thickness slightly less than 0.1 mm (see the paper for details). Note that the video shows only a part of the cross section (typically 20 x 20 mm) analysed in this study, in order to emphasize the necking in a low porosity region.
