A little bit late, but I believe it is Pascals.For those who know glens flow law: What unit do you measure shear strain in?
Also very late, but my take on it:I'm looking for practice problems on glacial mass balance and chart interpretation-- never figured out how to do that last year but now I need to learn. For example, if given a table of data titled simply "Glacial Mass Balance" and it gives years, glaciers' names, no units for anything, and a list of positive and negative numbers.... Blah. Are the numbers +/- from each previous year?? As in, if 1995 is -0.07 and 1996 is -0.01, is the total cumulative loss in mass balance -0.08, or -0.01? I originally assumed that it was a cummulative figure given for each years' new losses, so the number given was -0.01 down from the original, but now I'm thinking that doesn't make sense...I'm also assuming here that (-) refers to a loss in glacial mass balance (so ablation>accumulation) but I also want to be sure about that, just in case.
If anybody could help me out in this department, I'd appreciate it, thanks.
