Who is doing What?

Who is doing What in the Elmer/Ice community? What are the current developments and who to contact if you are interested? What are the projects for the near future? Here are these informations, to be updated from time to time…


  • Model by Basile de Fleurian, based on a double continuum approach. Same equations for both the the inefficient and efficient drainage systems (Darcy law). A paper is in preparation for TC. Contact: Basile de Fleurian (LGGE, Grenoble - new affiliation: UCI, Irvine), Olivier Gagliardini (LGGE, Grenoble)
  • Model by Mauro Werder, based on GlaDS (Glacier Drainage System model, Werder et al., submitted JGR 2013), based on the empirical Darcy-Weishbach law (turbulent flow) for both teh water sheet and the channels. Channels stand on the edges of the surface elements. Contact: Mauro Werder (SFU, Vancouver), Olivier Gagliardini (LGGE, Grenoble)


  • Model developed by Joe Todd, following the work by Sue Cook, based on a crevasse depth criteria. Development of solvers to interpolate the variables from the old to the new mesh after a calving event. Contact: Joe Todd (SPRI, Cambridge)
  • Model developed by Jean Krug, based on damage mechanics and linear elastic fracture mechanics for the calving criteria. Contact: Jean Krug and Gaël Durand (LGGE)
  • Sue Cook (UNIS)

Ice Temperature

  • Enthalpy model in development by Adrien Gilbert, including a solver for water percolation in firn. Contact: Adrien Gilbert (LGGE)

Numerical Performance

  • Block pre-conditioner and fast linear iterative solver strategies
  • Contact: Mika Malinen and Thomas Zwinger (CSC), Fabien Gillet-Chaulet (LGGE)

Deformable sediment

  • Plan for the development of deformable sediment by Rupert Gladstone (Rovaniemi)
  • Inverse modeling of basal drag and developpement and/or coupling of sediment deformation and hydrological models by Dorothée Vallot (Uppsala)

Lower Stokes equations

  • project of coupling SIA and Stokes in Elmer/Ice by Josephin Ahlkrona (Uppsala)

Coupling with an ocean model

  • project by Rupert Gladstone (Rovaniemi) to couple ROMS (Regional Ocean Modelling System, developed to include sub shelf processes by Ben Galton-Fenzi) with an ice flow model, potentially Elmer/Ice.
  • project to implement a Plume model in Elmer/Ice, starting October 2013 by Nicolas Jourdain (LGGE)

Coupling with a RCM
