Record #29463:

On the sliding of glaciers / Johannes Weertman.

Title: On the sliding of glaciers / Johannes Weertman.
Author(s): Weertman, Johannes.
Date: 1957.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1957.), Vol. 3(21) (1957)
Abstract: Proposes model to explain sliding of any glacier whose bottom is at pressure-melting point. Two mechanisms are considered: pressure melting and creep-rate enhancement through stress concentrations. Neither mechanism alone is sufficient to explain sliding, but if both operate together, appreciable sliding can occur.
Notes:

Journal of Glaciology. Vol. 3(21) :33-38 (1957).
