Deformation of till beneath ice stream B, West Antarctica

The behaviour and possible instability of the West Antarctic ice sheet depend fundamentally on the dynamics of the large ice streams which drain it. Model calculations show that most ice-stream velocity arises at the bed1,2, and radar sounding has shown the bed to be wet3, but the basal boundary condition is not well understood. Seismic evidence from the… CONTINUE READING
