  • The surface velocity of a rapidly moving ice stream has been determined to high accuracy and spatial density with the use of sequential satellite imagery. Variations of ice velocity are spatially related to surface undulations, and transverse velocity variations of up to 30 percent occur. Such large variations negate the concept of plug flow and call into question earlier mass-balance calculations for this and other ice streams where sparse velocity data were used. The coregistration of images… CONTINUE READING

    In this calculation we assume that the imbalance in velocity is 100 m per year and use values from Lingle (23) of 1100 m for the average depth and 75 km for the width
