Tidal Modulation of Ice Stream Flow
Entry ID: Anandakrishnan_0229629

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: A project to investigate the new-found, startling sensitivity of two major West Antarctic ice streams to tidal oscillations to learn the extent and character of the effect and its ramifications for future ice-stream behavior. Ice streams D, C and Whillans (B) all show strong but distinct tidal signals. The ice plain of Whillans is usually stopped outright, forward motion being limited to two ... View entire text
