Record #187920:

Dynamics of ice sheets and glaciers / Ralf Greve, Heinz Blatter.

Title: Dynamics of ice sheets and glaciers / Ralf Greve, Heinz Blatter.
Author(s): Greve, Ralf.
Blatter, Heinz.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: Berlin: Springer
Abstract: Graduate-level text introducing dynamics and thermodynamics of Earth's flowing ice masses and aiming to bridge gap between and conventional understandings of geophysical fluid dynamics and glacier dynamics. Introduces subject in winder context of climate research. Outlines general continuum dynamics before discussing material properties of polycrystalline ice as it appears in land masses on Earth and then deriving differential initial-boundary-value problems for flows of ice sheets, ice caps and glaciers. Emphasises hierarchies of approximations for different systems and discusses suitable numerical solution techniques. Includes chapter on glacial isostasy, and chapter dealing with demanding topics of current research (induced anisotropy, compressible firn, polythermal glaciers)
