Glacier dynamics

Abstract:

A model is proposed for the study of general two-dimensional 'polythermal' glacial ice flows. It consists of equations of conservation of mass, momentum and energy together with a constitutive relation between stress and strain rate and a full set of boundary conditions. A novel aspect is the consideration of the moisture content of temperate ice as an enthalpy variable: this represents a first attempt at incorporating the glacial hydrology in a dynamical model.

One of the bedrock ...
