Observations on the deformation of ice under low values of pure shear stress were undertaken at the Institute of Polar Studies in 1963-64. Stresses of the order of 0.04 kg/cm2 were applied to both polycrystalline and single crystal samples, the latter with the optic axis normal to the shear direction. In general, a terminal strain was observed after an immediate elastic deformation followed by an elasto-viscous yield. The numerous anomalies observed and the lack of agreement with other reports on deformation studies indicate the necessity for additional work.
