A two-dimensional array of electrical conductivity measurements (ECM) has been used to image the acidity of the Siple Dome (Antarctica) ice core in a vertical plane. Annual layering and possible stratigraphic discontinuities are apparent. A brief disruption to the chemical stratigraphy is detected at 680 m. Below 800 m, weaker layering occurs and is interpreted as the result of post-depositional migration of chemical species. This technique provides a way to observe the horizontal continuity of chemical layers in an ice core and identify some types of flow irregularity.
