The Antarctic equivalent of the "Grand Canyon"
Is the valley bottom here rock covered glacier? The flow from the left hand snow-field looks like the shape of a piedmont glacier.
Yes that's right. There are several groups here looking at the motion of the "rock glacier" which is in the Mullins Valley part of BEacon Valley.
Take a look at http://www-radar.jpl.nasa.gov/glacier/Papers/RIGNOTTEXT_Beacon.pdf
I spent several weeks in Beacon Valley wondering what the view from the top of the hills looked like. Now I know. Thanks Mike!
