Record #96615:

Ice-shelf topography and structure determined using satellite-radar altimetry and Landsat imagery / Simon N. Stephenson, H. Jay Zwally.

Title: Ice-shelf topography and structure determined using satellite-radar altimetry and Landsat imagery / Simon N. Stephenson, H. Jay Zwally.
Author(s): Stephenson, Simon N.
Zwally, H. Jay.
Date: 1989.
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1989.), Vol. 12 (1989)
Abstract: Glaciological structure and dynamics of West and Shackleton ice shelves are qualitatively determined using combination of satellite remote-sensing techniques. Sketch maps traced from unenhanced imagery show ice edge, grounding lines, flow lines, and rifts. Surface-elevation profiles and contour maps from radar altimetry provide free-board elevations of floating ice and show flow-line undulations and rumples characteristic of grounded ice. These two ice shelves consist of combination of fast-moving ice tongues from outlet glaciers and slow-moving parts constrained by islands, ice rises, and ice rumples.
