Abstract. For simulation purposes involving different realizations of ice fabrics, it can be necessary to generate arbitrarily large samples of c-axes based on the second-order orientation tensor, a commonly used descriptive statistics provided in publications of ice core measurements. This paper describes a sampling technique based on the combination of a vertical girdle and a single maximum Watson distributions.

Short summary
For simulation purposes regarding the physical properties of flowing ice, it can be necessary to generate arbitrarily large samples of crystal axes based on the second-order orientation tensor, a commonly used descriptive statistics provided in publications of ice core measurements. This paper describes a statistical sampling technique based on the combination of a vertical girdle and a single maximum Watson distributions.
