The ColorIce tool contains MATLAB scripts which accept a sequence of photographs of an ice thin section rotated between crossed-polarizers and 1) registers the images, 2) segments the grain boundaries, and 3) identifies the c-axis orientation of each grain in the images.

 A full description of the methodology and application has been submitted to Cold Regions Science and Technology. Metadata of this dataset will be updated once this becomes publicly available. For questions about the tool, please contact Cody C. Owen (
