Abstract

Lakes wander when steep ice scarps retreat due to collapse and melt. Rates of wander are c.1.3m yr-1. Rates of lowering due to lake wander on Flanders Moraine (Vestfold Hills, Antarctica) are c.0.05m yr-1, which is comparable to rates from elsewhere attributed to different processes.-from Author
