Abstract : The report presents the results of investigations which were made by the author during the Second Antartic Expedition (1956-1958). In the first part the author consicers the results of laboratory investigations of the laws of ide deformation. The second part is devoted to the problems of visco-plastic flow of glacial covers and a comparison of the analytic results which were obtained with data from observations under natural conditions in the Antartic.
