Calculation of ice shelf base using hydrostatic equilibrium

In Fig. 4D, we showed the surface elevation of the ice shelf from (32) and the basal elevation calculated on the basis of the hydrostatic relationship between ice thickness and surface elevation, using the following equationZs=(1ρiρw)Hwhere zs is the surface elevation, ρi is the density of ice (we assumed a value of 910 kg/m3), ρw is the density of seawater (we assumed a value of 1024 kg/m3), and H is the ice thickness.
