Histories of Accumulation, Thickness, and WAIS Divide Location, Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0473

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set contains radar internal layer and ice sheet topography data for two sites in Antarctica, along with associated model results from two studies. This project used geophysical inverse theory and a 2.5 D flowband ice-flow forward model to extract robust transient accumulation patterns from multiple deeper layers. Histories of divide migration, or the movement of the ice sheet and ... View entire text
