New 3D model of Store Glacier explains complex behaviour of Greenland’s marine-terminating outlets

Our project has created what is perhaps the most sophisticated 3D model of a glacier today. Our model is presented in full-Stokes 3D and features evolving hydrological systems, plume-induced melting at the submerged glacier front and iceberg calving. When the model is applied to Store Glacier (Sermeq Kujalleq) we found significant differences in behaviour during[…]
