Summary

The assumptions of a steady-state ice sheet with the present shape of Greenland and exact balance of its present net accumulation by ablation and calving have been used to simulate the flow and temperature fields upstream of and including the DYE 3 borehole site. Results include the vertical temperature and age profiles in the borehole and the points at which the ice at diiferent depths in the core would have been deposited if the steady-state hypothesis were true.
