Steady Motion of Ice Sheets

  title={Steady Motion of Ice Sheets},
  • Published 2010
Steady plane flow under gravity of a symmetric ice sheet resting on a horizontal rigid bed, subject to surface accumulation and ablation, basal drainage, and basal sliding according to a shear-tractionvelocity power law, is treated . The surface accumulation is taken to depend on height, and the drainage and sliding coefficient also depend on the height of overlying ice. The ice is described as a general non-linearly viscous incompressible fluid, with illustrations presented for Glen's power… CONTINUE READING
