Earth response to a changing ice cap in Langjökull, Iceland / Charles Gertler.

Title: Earth response to a changing ice cap in Langjökull, Iceland / Charles Gertler.
Author(s): Gertler, Charles.
Date: 2014.
Publisher: Cambridge :
Abstract: Describes use of finite volume self-gravitating Maxwell viscoelastic earth model to refine estimates of crustal uplift (radial displacement) under Iceland, and increase understanding of how earth behaviour affects mass balance measurements and ice dynamics for Langjökull ice cap. Uses model parameters reflecting current status of knowledge about earth rheology of Iceland, that is with particular reference to young lithosphere and anomalously viscous mantle. Performs two model runs, one-dimensional and three-dimensional, forced by refined ice history model composed of spatially varying load changes in Langjökull and uniform load changes from nearby glaciers. Discusses implications of results for ice modelling of Iceland.
Notes:

Unpublished thesis submitted for degree of Master of Philosophy, University of Cambridge.
