ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the modeling of three-dimensional (3D) flow throughout the whole ice cap with the use of full-Stokes finite element code Elmer/Ice. It involves the use of a Robin inverse method in inferring the basal friction from the observed surface velocities in 1995. It illustrates the importance of the basal friction parameter in the reproduction of the observed velocity fields.
