- ‘The dark band just north of the ice front is a narrow stretch of open water called a lead.’
- ‘The ice front will remain in the same place as long as the rate of accumulation is equal to the rate of melting.’
- ‘About 15,500 years ago, the ice front had cleared the Lake Erie basin, but advanced again to recover that area and more by 14,800 years ago.’
- ‘Labels of ice front positions denote cores collected in 1994-95.’
- ‘As water undermines the ice fronts, great blocks of ice up to 200 feet high break loose and crash into the water.’
- ‘The total length of their ice fronts is 2510 km, 443 km, and 230 km, respectively.’
- ‘During the middle of summer a camp was established just below the ice front, in preparation for the collection of watersamples.’
- ‘It is known that Pleistocene animals retreated from advancing ice fronts, or glacier, and followed retreating ice fronts.’

- ‘Here one was pent in by steep mountain walls and the great ice fronts of the Jätte and De Geer Glaciers, which descend from the Inland Ice.’
- ‘The proposed research will produce the first direct numerical simulations of the interaction of non-planar ice fronts with deformable cells.’
- ‘By using a GIS platform to store and digitize the images, we were able to easily compare temporal changes among ice fronts.’
- ‘High frequency ice divergence is dominated by ice response to wind stress rather than by tides except along the shelf break and ice fronts.’
- ‘In total approximately 10,000 square kilometres of ice had broken off along the 300 km long ice front.’
- ‘For example, compressive stresses near ice fronts may cause folding or thrusting of basal debris to the ablating ice surface.’
- ‘This was followed by a readvance of glaciers down major fjords and subsequent retreat to present ice fronts.’
- ‘A special front-tracking technique is used to compute the motion of the cell membrane and the ice front during freezing.’
- ‘As water undermines some ice fronts, great blocks of ice up to 200 feet high break loose and crash into the water.’
