Three-dimensional structures of temperature focused on Dome Fuji and east Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica, simulated in a three-dimensional shallow ice model, are reported. With a geothermal heat flux of 54.6 mW m−2, as used in several modelling studies of the Antarctic ice sheet, and an enhancement factor of 1.3, which is smaller than in previous studies, the model result taking into account the glacial cycles is in good agreement with the borehole temperature and surface topography at Dome Fuji. The basal temperature at Dome Fuji must be at or very close to the pressure-melting point. The simulated amplitude of basal temperature through glacial/interglacial cycles is <1 K.

More about this publication?
  • The Annals of Glaciology is a peer-reviewed, thematic journal published 2 to 4 times a year by the International Glaciological Society (IGS). Publication frequency is determined and volume/issue numbers assigned by the IGS Council on a year-to-year basis and with a lead time of 3 to 4 years. The Annals of Glaciology is included in the ISI Science Citation Index from volume 50, number 50 onwards.

    Themes can be on any aspect of the study of snow and ice. Individual members can make a suggestion for a theme for an Annals issue to the Secretary General, who will forward it to the IGS Publications Committee. The IGS Publication Committee will make a recommendation for an individual themed Annals issue, together with a potential Annals Chief Editor for that issue, to IGS Council. The IGS Council will make the decision whether to proceed, taking into account the spread of topics and the overall capacity for publication of pages in Annals.
