Record #150730:

Fundamentals of glacier dynamics / Cornelis J. Van der Veen.

Title: Fundamentals of glacier dynamics / Cornelis J. Van der Veen.
Author(s): Van der Veen, Cornelis J.
Date: 1999.
Publisher: Rotterdam: A.A. Balkema
Abstract: Intended as reference source for glaciologists, and for use in graduate courses in geophysics. Introduces modelling flow and dynamics of glaciers. Presents derivations of frequently used equations so reader can grasp mathematical principles involved and use them in other applications. Chapters deal with: ice in the climate system; mechanics of glacier flow; basal sliding; modelling glacier flow; equilibrium profiles of glaciers; glacier thermodynamics; numerical ice-sheet models; large-scale dynamics of ice sheets; mountain glaciers; Greenland ice sheet; Antarctic ice sheet.
Keywords: 551.32 -- Glaciology.
551.324 -- Land ice.
551.324.22 -- Glaciers.
