Record #126146:

Qualitative dynamics of marine ice sheets / Richard C.A. Hindmarsh.

Title: Qualitative dynamics of marine ice sheets / Richard C.A. Hindmarsh.
Author(s): Hindmarsh, Richard C. A.
Date: 1993.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
In: Ice in the climate system. (1993.),
Abstract: Examines dynamical classification of equilibria of marine ice sheets, arguing that fundamental equilibrium is neutral, and that this will be so for marine ice sheets with very narrow transitions between grounded ice and shelf. Where transition from grounded sheet to stream to shelf is smooth, equilibrium depends on physical processes which cause traction to decline along stream from sheet to shelf. Neutral equilibrium is still possible, but, as greater part of grounding zones are not ice streams, these ice streams may not be important in determining overall stability of marine ice sheets, and may even stabilize them. Conclusions rest upon new vertically integrated mechanical model of sheet--stream--shelf transition.
