Record #126657:

Vertical temperature profile of Ice Stream B / Hermann Engelhardt, W. Barclay Kamb.

Title: Vertical temperature profile of Ice Stream B / Hermann Engelhardt, W. Barclay Kamb.
Author(s): Engelhardt, Hermann.
Kamb, W. Barclay.
Date: 1993[pub.1994]
In: Antarctic Journal of the United States. (1993[pub.1994]), Vol. 28(5) (1993[pub.1994])
Abstract: Measured in several boreholes, using temperature transducers and thermistors. Results suggest that unusual reversed temperature dependence with altitude exists, leading to absence of colder ice below surface. This absence and basal heat generation create situation where Ice Stream B is relatively warm compared to other ice masses flowing down from higher altitudes at lower temperatures, and could contribute to possible instability of west Antarctic ice sheet.
