Even when free of fresh snow, its ice field
looks more opaque and whiter than that of alpine glaciers (Gillman 17).
The mechanical behaviour of pack ice fields
is studied by Lepparanta (2005).
2) 30 years (when the ice field
reached 20 m thick)
Officers GAO interviewed at ICE field
offices said that ICE policies and procedures limit their discretion when encountering the targets of their investigations--typically criminal or fugitive aliens, but that they can exercise more discretion for other aliens they encounter.
The accident took place at the end of the lead, at the beginning of an ice field
From 1987 to 2003, the area of the ice field
was reduced by half.
He also employs clever pairings in which formal pleasure is the flip side of a perceptual or interpretive conundrum (one triptych, for example, initially appears to be a view of three figures crossing a massive ice field
but turns out to be three views of the same individual).
The ice field
has been receding by about five metres a year.
The freeze-thaw system has a 4-ha (10-acre) primary ice field
and a 1-ha (3-acre) secondary ice field
Like great liners, these characters steer through the ice field
hoping to make the crossing without catastrophe.
Sure, they exercised poor judgment in plowing full speed through an ice field
despite being warned that there were icebergs as big as the Himalayas out there.
A chunk of ice stretching 250 miles long by 50 to 80 miles wide, the ice field
is akin to Antarctica but even more inaccessible because it's wedged between two soaring mastiffs on a 3,280-foot plateau.
