Record #112774:

Ice shelf basal melting: implications of a simple mathematical model / Adrian Jenkins.

Title: Ice shelf basal melting: implications of a simple mathematical model / Adrian Jenkins.
Author(s): Jenkins, Adrian.
Date: 1991.
In: Filchner Ronne Ice Shelf Programme. Report. (1991.), Vol. 5 (1991)
Abstract: Strength of subice-shelf ocean circulation and rate and distribution of basal ablation and accumulation are controlled by depth of ice-shelf base, basal gradient and temperature of underlying water. Aim of study was to quantify influence of each of these parameters. Series of model runs was undertaken using simple linear ice-shelf basal profile as input. Mean melt rate and concentration of meltwater in ice-shelf water were calculated for various values of grounding-line depth, basal slope and ambient water temperature.
