Short-term fluctuations of West Antarctic ice streams - model results
Entry ID: nsfopp0096302

Abstract: This project was aimed primarily at understanding the role of subglacial till
beds in controlling transient behavior of ice streams and ice sheets. Research
tools included a numerical model of ice stream flow over a till bed whose
properties were allowed to evolve through time in response to changes in basal
freezing and melting. This is the very first numerical model of ... View entire text
