FDSN Network Information

FDSN code 2C (2010-2011) Operated by Central Washington University
Network name Geophysical Study of Ice Stream Stick-slip dynamics (Whillans Ice Stream) Deployment region United States
Start date Jan. 1, 2010 End date Dec. 31, 2011
Short description

New observations have revealed that changes in ice sheets are occurring at rates far exceeding
the millennial time scales predicted by traditional models (Paterson, 1994). Our inability to fully
model these changes limits our ability to make predictions about their future contributions to
sea-level rise (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, 2007). Many of these changes are
taking place in the large ice streams and outlet glaciers that drain the interiors of ice sheets. One
such dynamic region is the Whillans Ice Stream (WIS), a large outlet for ice that drains from the
interior of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) into the Ross Ice Shelf.
