Record #126144:

Controls on changes in the west Antarctic ice sheet / Ian M. Whillans, C.J. Van der Veen.

Title: Controls on changes in the west Antarctic ice sheet / Ian M. Whillans, C.J. Van der Veen.
Author(s): Whillans, Ian M.
Van der Veen, C. J.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Ice in the climate system. (1993.),
Abstract: Changes are due to mechanical controls on flow of ice streams. These controls are associated with basal friction and lateral drag. Ice sheet is changing largely independently of forcings by global sea level and climate; rather, it is forcing for sea level.
Notes:
