Ice Stream C

This subscene shows a variety of relict features in the ice sheet, attesting to the rapid evolution of ice stream systems relative to most outlet glacier systems. Ice Stream C is flanked by several faint traces marking known or suspected former ice stream shear margins. At the upstream end of the ridge separating Ridge B/C (upper left in the image) several faint traces are intersected by the active shear margin of B, suggesting that flow in this area has recently reorganized. Just below this area, the runways of the former camp UpC (or "Upstream Charlie") are visible.

NOTE: White and blue colors used in the annotations are simply for better contrast against the background and have no other significance.
