  1. New FOSLS Formulation of Nonlinear Stokes Flow for Glaciers

    07 Feb 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Jeffrey Allen

    This talk describes two First-order System Least-squares (FOSLS) formulations of the nonlinear Stokes flow used to model glaciers and ice sheets. The first is a Stress formulation and the second a Stress-Vorticity formulation. Both use fluidity, which is the reciprocal of viscosity and avoid the...
