Record #117327:

Foliation on Tyndall glacier, southern Patagonia / Gino Casassa.

Title: Foliation on Tyndall glacier, southern Patagonia / Gino Casassa.
Author(s): Casassa, Gino.
Date: 1992.
In: Bulletin of Glacier Research. (1992.), Vol. 10 (1992)
Abstract: Describes pattern of foliation along transverse profile of ablation area. Consisted of alternating layers of bubble and bubble-free ice, generally folded and sometimes faulted, which indicates complex strain regime. Foliation is strongest at medial moraine, and only one set of foliation planes is observed. This foliation at medial moraine is parallel to glacier flow and is clearly seen from air photographs, suggesting similar origin to flow stripes observed on satellite imagery of Antarctic glaciers.
