Summary of Proposal HYD2997

TitleIce deformation and crevasse formation at Brunt Ice Shelf, Antarctica
Investigator Floricioiu, Dana - DLR, IMF
Team Member
Dr Baessler, Michael - DLR, IMF
Dr. Gudmundsson, Hilmar - British Antarctic Survey, N/A
SummaryThe data will be used to estimate the changes in the geometry of a major crack on Brunt Ice Shelf and the strain rates in the area. The velocity data will be used to initialize an ice-flow model of the Brunt Ice Shelf. The objective is to assess the likely future propagation of cracks in the ice shelf around the Halley Research Station, and to determine a new future site.
