Using ice-flow models to evaluate potential sites of million year-old ice in Antarctica
Climate of the Past
<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> Finding suitable potential sites for an undisturbed record of million-year old ice in Antarctica requires slow-moving ice (preferably an ice divide) and basal conditions that are not disturbed by large topographic variations. Furthermore, ice should be thick and cold basal conditions should prevail, since basal melting would destroy the bottom layers. However, thick ice (needed to resolve the signal at sufficient high resolution) increases basal temperatures, whichdoi:10.5194/cp-9-2335-2013 fatcat:qakaeyivo5ahfo4nxeevazcpie
