Tracing particle paths in the Antarctic ice sheet

A layer of moraine within the Antarctic ice sheet has been detected in the course of airborne radar ice soundings. The moraine was injected at the margin of the ice and can serve as a tracer to pick out a particle path within the ice. When combined with surface measurements, the ability to trace particle paths should allow detailed modelling of the dynamic behaviour in limited areas.
