Videos of Basal Ice in Boreholes on the Kamb Ice Stream in West Antarctica
Entry ID: NSIDC-0528

Abstract: This data set is a collection of video data of basal ice taken in a borehole on the Kamb Ice Stream in West Antarctica. Ice streams are an expression of the inherent instability of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet, and their behavior is a key control on the overall ice-sheet mass balance. Understanding the response of the ice sheet in a warming climate requires a thorough understanding of the internal ... View entire text
