Surging glaciers


Figure: Development of two surging glaciers. Upper graph: length, lower graph: volume.

Surging glaciers are glaciers experiencing periodic and sudden advances. You will learn how to simulate surging dynamics in a glacier model and run a few experiments with it. To open the notebook in your browser use the button below:



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

  • It is helpful to work through the notebook about ice flow parameters first.
