KU ScholarWorks is the digital repository of the University of Kansas. It contains scholarly work created by KU faculty, staff and students, as well as material from the University Archives. KU ScholarWorks makes important research and historical items available to a wider audience and helps assure their long-term preservation.

On February 11, 2010 the KU Faculty Senate passed a revised Open Access policy granting the University permission to deposit a copy of their scholarly work in an open access repository-- KU ScholarWorks. For more about the policy, "how to" documents, Q&A, addenda and more, please visit Open Access @ KU.

For information about submitting to KU ScholarWorks please contact Marianne Reed, mreed@ku.edu. For information about KU ScholarWorks in general, please email kuscholarworks@ku.edu.

  • Shear measurements across the northern margin of Whillans Ice Stream 

    Van Der Veen, C.J.; Jezek, K.; Stearns, Leigh (International Glaciological Society, 2007-01-01)
    Field measurements of surface deformation across the northern shear margin of Whillans Ice Stream, West Antarctica, were analyzed to better understand the processes controlling the position and migration of this margin. ...
  • Quantitative estimates of velocity sensitivity to surface melt variations at a large Greenland outlet glacier 

    Anderson, M.L.; Nettles, M.; Larsen, T.B.; Hamilton, Gordon S.; Stearns, Leigh (International Glaciological Society, 2011-09-01)
    The flow speed of Greenland outlet glaciers is governed by several factors, the relative importance of which is poorly understood. The delivery of surface-generated meltwater to the bed of alpine glaciers has been shown ...
  • Decadal-scale variations in ice flow along Whillans Ice Stream and its tributaries, West Antarctica 

    Stearns, Leigh; Jezek, K.A.; Van der Veen, C.J. (International Glaciological Society, 2005-01-01)
    We investigate velocity changes occurring along Whillans Ice Stream (WIS) by comparing velocities derived from repeat aerial photographs acquired in 1985–89 (average date of 1987) to interferometric satellite radar (InSAR) ...
  • Controls on the recent speed-up of Jakobshavn Isbræ, West Greenland 

    Van Der Veen, C.J.; Plummer, J.C.; Stearns, Leigh (International Glaciological Society, 2011-09-01)
    Jakobshavn Isbrae, West Greenland, underwent a large, rapid and not well understood change in flow dynamics in 1998, leading to a doubling of its ice discharge rates. We calculate the width-averaged forces controlling flow ...
  • Recurring dynamically-induced thinning during 1985-2010 on Upernavik Isstrøm, West Greenland 

    Khan, S.A.; Kjaer, K.H.; Korsgaard, N.J.; Wahr, J.; Joughin, I.R.; Timm, L.A.; Bamber, J.L.; van den Broeke, M.; Stearns, Leigh; Hamilton, Gordon S.; Csatho, B.M.; Nielsen, K.; Hurkmans, R.; Babonis, G. (American Geophysical Union, 2013-02-14)
    1] Many glaciers along the southeast and northwest coasts of Greenland have accelerated, increasing the ice sheet's contribution to global sea-level rise. In this article, we map elevation changes on Upernavik Isstrøm (UI), ...
