Record #125603:

The detailed net mass balance of the ice plain on Ice Stream B, Antarctica: a geographic information system approach / Robert A. Bindschadler, Patricia L. Vornberger, Sion Shabtaie.

Title: The detailed net mass balance of the ice plain on Ice Stream B, Antarctica: a geographic information system approach / Robert A. Bindschadler, Patricia L. Vornberger, Sion Shabtaie.
Author(s): Bindschadler, Robert A.
Vornberger, Patricia L.
Shabtaie, Sion.
Date: 1993.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1993.), Vol. 39(133) (1993)
Abstract: Applies GIS concept to calculation of detailed pattern of net mass balance. Application is not ideal, but demonstrated advantages over established methods and justifies collection of data sets more appropriate to this method in other ice-covered regions. Calculations reveal that not only are there significant changes in thickness occurring on ice plain, but that pattern of thickening and thinning exhibits major asymmetry between two tributaries of Ice Stream B, denoting real differences in present dynamics.
