Increased summer ice velocities on the Greenland ice sheet are driven by meltwater input to the subglacial environment. However, spatial patterns of surface input and partitioning of meltwater between different pathways ...
Antarctic subglacial groundwater: a concept paper on its measurement and potential influence on ice flow Is groundwater abundant in Antarctica and does it modulate ice flow? Answering this question matters because ice streams flow by gliding over a wet substrate of till. Water fed to ice-stream beds thus influences ice-sheet ...
Characterizing near-surface firn using the scattered signal component of the glacier surface return from airborne radio-echo sounding (Wiley, 2017-01-19)We derive the scattered component (hereafter referred to as the incoherent component) of glacier surface echoes from airborne radio-echo sounding measurements over Devon Ice Cap, Arctic Canada, and compare the scattering ...
