Abstract:Mathematical procedures are discussed which make it possible to calculate the thickness of the ice sheet, the rheological properties of ice, temperature and velocities in the glacier body, mass balance and configurations of the bed. The results are compared with data obtained during a traverse from Mirnyy Station to Dome B. The ice flow data, calculated and measured by radio echo soundings, confirm the reliability of the calculation technique.
