Laboratory Study of Stick-Slip Behavior and Deformation Mechanics of Subglacial Till
Entry ID: NSF-ANT05-38195

Abstract: This award supports a project to conduct laboratory experiments and numerical modeling to determine the constitutive properties of subglacial till under dynamic stressing and to test the hypothesis that granular properties of till are sufficient, when coupled elastically to a large ice stream, to reproduce the field observations of triggered slip and subglacial seismicity. Testing will be carried ... View entire text
