The difference was consistent with the results from theElephantMoraine. On the ice field adjacentto the Allan Hills, it takesonly 61 + 5 daysof ablationat summerratesto equal the annual amount. The trendin the datasuggests thataveragesummer temperatureson the ice fields increase from the ElephantMoraine towardthe marginof the ice sheet. As a result, summerablationrates (see Table 3 and Figure 7) rise toward the margin of the ice sheet, requiring slightly fewer days in the Allan Hills to equalthe amountof ice lostannuallyat eachlocality.
