Ice velocity, surface elevation, and ice thickness were measured along oversnow traverse routes in the sector of Wilkes Land, East Antarctica, bounded by long. 93° and 131°E, and the coast and lat. 75°S. The velocity measurements show that the ice flow varies smoothly in both direction and magnitude over a distance scale of at least 20 times the ice thickness, and that it is in the direction of the surface slope averaged over a similar distance scale. -from Authors
