Record #33944:

Crystal orientation in glacier and in experimentally deformed ice / George P. Rigsby.

Title: Crystal orientation in glacier and in experimentally deformed ice / George P. Rigsby.
Author(s): Rigsby, George P.
Date: 1960.
In: Journal of Glaciology. (1960.), Vol. 3(27) (1960)
Abstract: Over 8000 ice crystals were oriented and measured for crystal-fabric studies from temperate and polar glaciers, using large universal stage and thin-section techniques. Very strong fabrics have been found and laboratory experiments were carried out to investigate problems of glacier flow. Concludes that proper orientation of crystal in order to glide on basal plane is important in flow of polar glacier ice, and that gliding plus recrystallization or continual boundary migration is important in flow of temperate glacier ice.
