Record #202985:

Fundamentals of glacier dynamics / C.J. van der Veen.

Title: Fundamentals of glacier dynamics / C.J. van der Veen.
Author(s): van der Veen, C. J.
Date: 2013.
Publisher: Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press
Abstract: Offers theoretical framework for quantitavely interpreting observed glacier changes and for developing models of glacier flow, based on partitioning of full stresses into lithostatic component associated with gravitational action and resistive stresses opposing this actions. Revised edition eliminates some material on glacier observations. New chapter addresses fracture mechanics and iceberg calving. Covers: mathematical tools; ice deformation; mechanics of glacier flow; modelling glacier flow; equilibrium profiles of glaciers; glacier thermodynamics; subglacial processes; fractures; numerical ice sheet models; dynamics of glacier and ice sheets (responses to changes, surges, instability, etc.); and interpreting observations.
