Record #84494:

Ice-shelf backpressure: form drag versus dynamic drag / Douglas R. MacAyeal.

Title: Ice-shelf backpressure: form drag versus dynamic drag / Douglas R. MacAyeal.
Author(s): MacAyeal, Douglas R.
Date: 1987.
Publisher: Dordrecht: D. Reidel Publishing Co.
In: Dynamics of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet : proceedings of a Workshop held in Utrecht, May 6-8, 1985. (1987.),
Abstract: Defines ice-shelf back-pressure in terms of depth-integrated force exerted by ice shelf across material plane cutting vertically through ice at grounding line of ice stream. Examines relationship between back-pressure and two factors restricting ice-shelf flow: form drag and dynamic drag. Demonstrates potential changes of back-pressure at grounding line of Ice Stream B as result of impulsive removal of Crary Ice Rise.
