Fast Glacier Flow



An AGU Chapman Conference on Fast Glacier Flow was held at Whistler Village, Canada, from May 4 to 8, 1986. The timing of the conference seemed particularly propitious because of results of recent observational programs, such as the breakup of the tidewater Columbia Glacier in Alaska, the imbalance of Ice Stream B in Antarctica and the existence of deforming sediment under it, and the surge of Variegated Glacier in Alaska.
