Subglacial hydrological control on flow of an Antarctic Peninsula palaeo-ice stream

Robert D. Larter et al.

Data sets

A bathymetric compilation over Anvers-Hugo Trough, Perrier Trough and Palmer Deep, 1990-2017 R. D. Larter, K. A. Hogan, C.-D. Hillenbrand, J. A. Smith, C. L. Batchelor, M. Cartigny, A. J. Tate, J. D. Kirkham, Z. A. Roseby, A. G. C. Graham, and J. A. Dowdeswell

Short summary
We present high-resolution bathymetry data that provide the most complete and detailed imagery of any Antarctic palaeo-ice stream bed. These data show how subglacial water was delivered to and influenced the dynamic behaviour of the ice stream. Our observations provide insights relevant to understanding the behaviour of modern ice streams and forecasting the contributions that they will make to future sea level rise.
