Abstract

MR. DEELEY will not have anything to say to ice conveying thrust as a solid body, which has been the sheet anchor of glacial geology for many a decade. He also repudiates Dr. Wallace's notion that regelation can in some way act as a compensating element when crushing supervenes in ice, and thus enable it under crushing pressure to convey thrust. So far so good.
