Record #125437:

On the initiation of ice sheets / Ayako Abe-Ouchi, Heinz Blatter.

Title: On the initiation of ice sheets / Ayako Abe-Ouchi, Heinz Blatter.
Author(s): Abe-Ouchi, Ayako.
Blatter, Heinz.
Date: 1993.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 18 (1993)
Abstract: Uses two-dimensional thermo-mechanical ice-sheet model to investigate initiation and evolution of ice sheets. Found that: ice sheet can grow from initial area of <50 km diameter with positive accumulation rate; pattern of multiple steady-state solution branches depends critically on surface mass balance; and snow accumulation controls growth rate of ice mass, which is crucial for ice sheets evolving in limited time available during Milankovitch cycles.
Notes:
