The formation of ice sails

Abstract:
Debris-covered glaciers are prone to the formation of a number of supraglacial geomorphological features, and generally speaking, their upper surfaces are far from level surfaces. Some of these features are due to radiation screening or enhancing properties of the debris cover, but theoretical explanations of the consequent surface forms are in their infancy. In this paper we consider a theoretical model for the formation of ‘ice sails’, which are regularly spaced bare ice features which are found on debris-covered glaciers in the Karakoram.
