Abstract : The paper describes an attempt to determine the velocity of ice movement within a glacier by geophysical methods. The most applicable methods in this connection are those of electric surveying; those of magnetic surveying are more limited. In the present case both these methods were used to determine the velocities of movement of the internal ice-strata in the Central Tuyuksu glacier of the Trans-Ili Alatau.
