Some dynamics studies on Urumqi Glacier no. 1, Tianshan glaciological station, China / Maohuan Huang, Zhongxiang Wang, Baolin Cai, Jiankang Han.

Title: Some dynamics studies on Urumqi Glacier no. 1, Tianshan glaciological station, China / Maohuan Huang, Zhongxiang Wang, Baolin Cai, Jiankang Han.

Publisher: Cambridge: International Glaciological Society
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1989.), Vol. 12 (1989)
Abstract: Zero isopleth of surface areal strain-rate is roughly parallel to, but below, equilibrium line of glacier. In middle and lower parts of ablation area, basal temperature is either close to or at melting point, whereas glacier is frozen to bed above and around equilibrium line. Basal bulk ice is deforming continuously and inhomogeneously but, in inner parts of glacier, where strain-rate is smaller, homogeneous deformation can only be assumed conditionally. In ablation area, pure shear is predominant near base of glacier and simple shear becomes progressively more important from inner parts of glacier towards margins.
