ICESHEET 1.0: a program to produce paleo-ice sheet reconstructions with minimal assumptions

Gowan, Evan J.; Tregoning, Paul; Purcell, Anthony; Lea, James; Fransner, Oscar J.; Noormets, Riko; Dowdeswell, J. A.


We describe a program that produces paleo-ice sheet reconstructions using an assumption of steady-state, perfectly plastic ice flow behaviour. It incorporates three input parameters: ice margin, basal shear stress and basal topography. Though it is unlikely that paleo-ice sheets were ever in complete steady-state conditions, this method can produce an ice sheet without relying on complicated and unconstrained parameters such as climate and ice dynamics. This makes it advantageous to use in...[Show more]
