  • Basal-flow conditions at the northeastern margin of the Laurentide ice sheet, Lancaster Sound
  • Variations in valley glaciers activity in the Transantarctic Mountains as indicated by associated flow bands in the Ross Ice Shelf in Sea level ice and climatic change.
  • Dating of Greenland ice cores by flow models, isotopes, volcanic debris, and continental dust
  • The dry areas of the Antarctic are extreme deserts. Because of the cold they are not subjected to rainfall and geochemical separations can take place which would be destroyed by flowing water in the more temperate deserts. The distribution
  • of rapid transition. Tests show that ice sheet behavior is most sensitive to sea-level change, basal marine melting and accumulation and is less sensitive to isostasy, spatial variation in accumulation, calving rates, and ice flow parameterization.
  • , and permafrost at shallow depths. Over three-quarters of annual discharge is released during the melt period, but occasional high-flow events are also produced by summer rainstorms. About 80 percent of annual precipitation occurs as snowfall, and about 70 percent
  • VI Sound-Glacier profiles appear to be closely related to ice discharge especially to convergent and divergent flow. Comparison of subglacial topography with geological evidence of faulting suggests that the area around George VI Sound is a region
  • during summer 1977 underlines the importance of cyclonic flows from South West and South, and the shortness of beautiful anticyclonic weather.
  • pavement created during short duration high flows in earlier years. Transport rates are highly variable. An average annual total sediment discharge of 3 400 t/y. confirms earlier conclusions that sedimentation rates on Antarctic sandur are much lower than
  • radiation, sensible heat transfer and run-off production. In addition summer precipitation generated surface flow with low run-off coefficients. Suspended and dissolved sediment concentrations in surface run-off were low suggesting that slopewash
  • (approximately 120,000 yr) age determinations on shell fragments (Hiatella solida) found in basal till suggest a Wisconsin age for the glaciation that incorporated them. The pattern of ice flow differed from that deduced for this area in the CLIMAP reconstruction.
  • Late Wisconsinan age glacial Landforms and deposits indicate that an ice shelf of at least 60,000 km flowed northwestward into Viscount Melville Sound, probably from the M'Clintock Dome of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. The ice shelf overlapped coastal
