Flow of the Brunt Ice Shelf, Antarctica, derived from Landsat images, 1974–85

Satellite images recorded in 1973, 1974, and 1985 of the Brunt Ice Shelf are compared. There are sufficient identifiable features moving with the ice shelf to show flow patterns over an area of ~10 000 km2. Velocities vary from 500 m a−1 in the west, near the Dawson-Lambton Ice Stream, to 1300 m a−1 in the east, within the Stancomb-Wills Ice Stream.
