Managing large numbers of rasters

I'm currently trying to make a map doc using 202 raster DEMs, but I'm finding that Arc keeps crashing. At present I am just using the rasters as normal individual layers and am wondering if this is just too much data for my system to handle.


Can anyone suggest a better way of bringing together this many rasters?


The DEMs are the outputs from an ice sheet model and each raster represents the ice cover at a given point during the modelled time period. They are all of the same area and I need to overlay them in the same map doc, so that I can click through and see the changes. I will also need to do some basic processing to get polygon outlines of the ice cover for each raster and to use the Raster Calculator to sum multiple rasters.


I am using Arc 10.1 with a basic licence.
