Record #171501:

Streamlined bedrock terrain and fast ice flow, Jakobshavns Isbrae, West Greenland: implications for ice stream and ice sheet dynamics / David H. Roberts, Antony J. Long.

Title: Streamlined bedrock terrain and fast ice flow, Jakobshavns Isbrae, West Greenland: implications for ice stream and ice sheet dynamics / David H. Roberts, Antony J. Long.
Author(s): Roberts, David H.
Long, Antony J.
Date: 2005.
In: Boreas. (2005.), Vol. 34(1) (2005)
Abstract: Differences in bed form morphology are used to explore contrasts in base conditions with ice flow speed. Whalebacks are seen to be caused by faster speeds and thicker ice, but are modified by plucking. Bed shows basal sliding during past glacier advances. Disko Bugt seems to have had convergent flow during repeated cycles.
Notes:
