Determination of a flow center on an ice cap / Cornelis J. Van der Veen, Ian M. Whillans.

Title: Determination of a flow center on an ice cap / Cornelis J. Van der Veen, Ian M. Whillans.
Author(s): Van der Veen, Cornelis J.
Whillans, Ian M.
Date: 1992.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1992.), Vol. 38(130) (1992)
Abstract: Develops method and applies to Dunde ice cap, China. Strain rates are used to compute stresses. These are used with consideration of balance of forces to compute basal friction. Flow centre at bed occurs where this friction changes sign. For Dunde ice cap, basal flow centre nearly underlies summit.
