Aims and objectives
Ice dynamical models that –in comparisonto Shallow Ice Approximation-includehigher order approximation or even full Stokes equations are used to get more insights in the impact of model physicson the simulated results on Austfonna Ice Cap, Svalbard .
Subsequent studies upon the extension of SVALI include coupling hydrology models with ice dynamical model aiming to understand the internally triggered mechanism at the ice/bed interface of the recent speed up of the glacier in Basin 3. Eventually we aim to improve future projection of ASF through one-way coupling of the ice dynamical model with climate models, including the output a tentativefuture sea level contribution from ASF.
