The glaciological studies of the Baffin Island Expedition, 1950. Part 5: on the variation of the shear stress on the bed of an ice cap / William H. Ward, Svenn Orvig.

Title: The glaciological studies of the Baffin Island Expedition, 1950. Part 5: on the variation of the shear stress on the bed of an ice cap / William H. Ward, Svenn Orvig.
Author(s): Ward, William H.
Orvig, Svenn.
Date: 1953.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1953.), Vol. 2(14) (1953)
Abstract: Applies Nye's method for calculating thickness of ice sheets to southern lobe of Barnes Ice Cap. Variations of shear stress on bed are calculated. Some values are unusually low; explanation is offered. Comments by W.H. Ward, p.247-248.
