The drainage system beneath ice sheets is poorly understood, even though it is a major determinant of their basal boundary condition, with implications for their form, flow and stability, and particularly of the ice streams that are crucial dynamic components. Understanding can be enhanced by evidence from the beds of former ice sheets. Glaciological principles are applied to geological evidence in the Vale of York that demonstrate occupancy by a major ice stream of the British ice sheet, with… CONTINUE READING
