(10 5 –10 7 years) of the material. Our shear stress estimates of 10 � 1.5 –10 � 2.5 MPa yield strain rates on the order of 10 � 11 –10 � 16 s � 1 , which are within the superplastic flow regime of ice. Mean annual surface temperatures, age constraints, and strain estimates show that it is possible for a meters-thick ice-dust mixture to undergo viscous deformation under past or present surface conditions for ice grain sizes >10 mm. The meters-thick layer in which the viscous flow features… Expand
