Record #153224:

Crevasses on glaciers / C.J. Van der Veen.

Title: Crevasses on glaciers / C.J. Van der Veen.
Author(s): Van der Veen, C. J.
Date: 1999.
In: Polar Geography. (1999.), Vol. 23(3) (1999)
Abstract: Deals with crevasse formation from historical point of view; and with problem of crevasse orientation relative to principal stress or strain rate, and reports strike-slip motion, with crevasse walls moving parallel to each other. Models suggest opening mode combines with shearing mode in crevasse formation so crevasse orientation may differ by 20° from optimum. Shearing motion may act over greater depths.
