Speed of Bindschadler (right) and MacAyeal (left) Ice Streams, West Antarctica. Flow direction is generally from top to bottom of figure with speed indicated by color superimposed on a mosaic of 14 Landsat images enhanced to highlight surface features. Faster ice occurs in the central portion of each ice stream but the spatial complexity indicates a spatial variation in the lateral, longitudinal and basal forces that determine internal stresses, strains and speeds of the ice. Velocity in metres/year.
