The Glaciological Basis of Palaeoclimatic Reconstructions of Ice-Shelf Moraines
Entry ID: K064_2010_2012_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The research is giving us an understanding of the entrainment, transfer and deposition of sediment by ice shelves. The investigation of the structure, composition and motion of the Southern McMurdo Ice shelf will develop a model for the accretion and transfer of ice and debris in ice shelves and a glaciological basis for palaeoclimatic reconstructions derived from ice shelf moraines. Defining the ... View entire text
