Dry-Based Ice-Cliff Dynamics: Taylor Glacier, Antarctica
Entry ID: hallet_0230338ecp

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This project is a comprehensive study of land-based polar ice cliffs. Through field measurements, modeling, and remote sensing, the physics underlying the formation of ice cliffs at the margin of Taylor Glacier in the McMurdo Dry Valleys has been investigated. At two sites, measurements of ice deformation and temperature fields near the cliff face are combined with existing energy balance data to ... View entire text
