Summary
Abstract: Investigations into the processes of debris entrainment and the formation of a debris layer within glacial ice was conducted. The glacial ice velocity at various points on the Taylor Glacier was conducted over several seasons to establish a model of entrainment, transport and deposition of glacial debris by polar ice. In the 1975-1976 season, three rows of poles (18) were placed on the lower 800 m ... View entire text
