Lateral boundary conditions for a local anisotropic ice-flow model

  • Olivier Gagliardini (a1) and Jacques Meyssonnier (a1)
Abstract

A local two-dimensional flow model which accounts for the anisotropic behaviour of polar ice and the evolution of its strain-induced anisotropy is briefly reviewed. Due to its complexity, it is not yet possible to use this model to simulate the flow of a whole ice sheet, and its potential applications are presently restricted to limited spatial domains around existing drilling sites. In order to calculate the local flow of ice, boundary conditions must be applied on the lateral edges of the studied domain. Since these limits correspond to fictitious sections of the ice sheet, the type of boundary condition to adopt is not obvious. In the present paper, different kinds of boundary conditions of the Dirichlet type, applied at the lateral boundary of an idealized ice sheet of simplified geometry, are discussed. This will serve as a first step towards the coupling of the local flow model with a global ice-sheet flow model.
