Ice flow parameters

../_images/intro_fig_iceflow_parameters.png

Figure: Geometry of glacier models after 1500 years. Blue graph: glacier moves by deformation, orange graph: glacier that slides also.

In this notebook we will have a closer look at the parameters that describe ice flow: Glen’s creep parameter and the sliding parameter. We will implement them in our model and see their influence on glacier flow.

Prerequisites: You went through the notebook about glacier flowline modelling, so that you understand the concept of building a simple glacier model with OGGM.
