Finite-Element Simulation of the Thermal Regime of the Erebus Glacier Tongue, Antarctica
Journal of Glaciology
Finite-element method is used to determine the temperature distribution within the Erebus Glacier tongue based on information from short-term observations (Holdsworth, 1982). It is shown that, provided the up-stream temperature profile along the depth is known, steady-state assumptions are reliable for computing the temperature field within most of the ice mass at any given time for a glacier tongue. Numerical results from analyses of the Erebus Glacier tongue also indicate that the maindoi:10.3189/s0022143000012259 fatcat:yv75r6tc2fh2day4wpwhqhaze4
