Glacier Modeling 2014/10/01 2015/12/31 National Science Foundation (NSF) grant DGE- 1144083 (GRFP)
We are using a newly developed debris-covered glacier model to determine the effect of debris cover on glacier length. The model allows for fully transient advection of debris through and on top of the glacier. We are currently exploring the basic feedbacks between debris input location, erosion rate, mass balance parameterization, and glacier length.
