The philosopher in the kitchen: the role of mathematical modelling in explaining drumlin formation

Abstract:

Scientific progress does not take place in a linear fashion, but often occurs through sudden advances following years of stagnation, in the course of which quite heated battles between proponents of different viewpoints can occur. In this paper, we review several instances of such debates, and use them to throw light on a current philosophical tussle between proponents of different explanations for the formation of drumlins, and other subglacial bedforms. We conclude that the differences of o...
