GPR surveys, meteorological and hydrology data from the Joyce, Garwood and Hobbs glaciers in the McMurdo Dry Valleys to investigate glacier-permafrost interactions
Entry ID: K064_2008_2010_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The aim of this study was to develop an understanding of the interactions between glaciers and their permafrost beds that will permit models of glaciers to realistically parameterise ice motion. Improvement of such models is central to their success in predicting glacier response to climate change. A multifaceted investigation of the hydrology, sedimentology, geochemistry and deformation of ... View entire text
