Thermal Convection and the Origin of Ice StreamsJournal of Glaciology
Abstract/ SummaryIce streams are a fact of ice-sheet dynamics, draining up to 90% of the ice. Thermal convection in ice below the density inversion is a speculation. An attempt is made to meld the two in such a way that the speculation becomes an explanation for the fact.
