Record #112040:

A tutorial on control methods in ice sheet modelling: application to the estimate of basal stress / Douglas R. MacAyeal.

Title: A tutorial on control methods in ice sheet modelling: application to the estimate of basal stress / Douglas R. MacAyeal.
Author(s): MacAyeal, Douglas R.
Date: 1991.
In: Eos : transactions, American Geophysical Union. (1991.), Vol. 72(44, supplement) (1991)
Abstract: AGU Fall Meeting Program and Abstracts, December 9-13, 1991. Control methods provide means of formulating and solving glaciological inverse problems in circumstances where the essential physical processes can be described by numerical models. To illustrate this, finite difference model of ice-stream flow is used to invert Landsat measured surface velocity for irregular spatial distribution of basal friction associated with Ice Stream E, Antarctica. Inferred distribution suggests that rigid bedrock substrata may contact base of ice stream in small areas where measured surface velocity displays strong vorticity, and where ice-stream surface appears rumpled in Landsat images.
