9. Bounds on the calving cliff height of marine terminating glaciers
Yue Ma, Cory S. Tripathy, Jeremy N. Bassis
• We simulated tensile and shear failure within idealized glaciers using a full-Stokes ice dynamics model
• Surface and basal crevasses intersect when rapidly sliding glaciers thin to buoyancy, and shear failure occurs when ice thickness is large
• Tensile and shear failure mechanisms together provide lower and upper bounds on permissible ice thickness for any given water depth
