Surface ice flow characteristics in the Framnes Mountains
Entry ID: ASAC_599

Abstract: From the abstract of one of the referenced papers:

Ice-movement surveys in the Framnes Mountains from austral summers 1993-1994 and 1994-1995 are presented with complementary surface elevations and structural interpretations. Surface velocities of 21 m a -1 have been recorded in Ice Stream B and 31 m a -1 in Ice Stream C. The flow rate varied between 11.6 and 21.0 m a -1 over a ... View entire text
