Theory

Liquid water is thought to move through alpine glaciers as diffuse and channelized flow, and is governed by the pressure field created by the weight of overlying ice. This 2-D model combines the governing equations for both types of flow to model the movement of water in the the Gornergletscher, an alpine glacier in Switzerland.
