Histories of accumulation, thickness and WAIS Divide location from radar layers using a new inverse approach
Entry ID: Waddington_0440666

Abstract: This project used geophysical inverse theory and a 2.5D flowband ice-flow forward model to extract robust transient accumulation patterns from multiple deeper layers. Histories of divide migration and ice-surface evolution are also produced. The data used to solve the inverse problem, and the model solutions are provided. Waddington et al. (2007) demonstrated this inverse approach using a ... View entire text
