Record #96645:

Relation between water input, basal water pressure, and sliding of Columbia Glacier, Alaska, U.S.A. (abstract) / Mark F. Meier.

Title: Relation between water input, basal water pressure, and sliding of Columbia Glacier, Alaska, U.S.A. (abstract) / Mark F. Meier.
Author(s): Meier, Mark F.
Date: 1989.
Publisher: Cambridge: International Glaciological Society
In: Annals of Glaciology. (1989.), Vol. 12 (1989)
Abstract: Glacier was drilled at two locations (ice thickness 975 and 560 m) 9 km apart in summer 1987. Fluctuations in basal water pressure, water input as rain or ice melt, and surface-ice velocities were measured at short time intervals continuously during July and August. Results suggest that sliding is not function of just driving stress and effective pressure; amount (thickness and/or areal extent) of water, or possibly rate of change of water input will have to be considered.
