Record #125600:

In search of ice-stream sticky spots / Richard B. Alley.

Title: In search of ice-stream sticky spots / Richard B. Alley.
Author(s): Alley, Richard B.
Date: 1993.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 39(133) (1993)
Abstract: Surveys of large-scale bed roughness would identify sticky spots caused by bedrock bumps, water-pressure measurements in regions of thin or zero till might reveal whether they were sticky spots, and strain grids across margins of ice-surface highs would show whether highs were causing sticky spots. Sticky spots probably are not dominant in controlling Ice Stream B near Upstream B camp, west Antarctica.
