Abstract: [1] The diagnostic, dynamic/thermodynamic ice shelf model Finite Element Shallow Shelf Approximation Code (FESSACODE) is applied to the Ross Ice Shelf. We simulate the present ice flow which results from the ice thickness distribution, the inflow at the grounding line, and the surface and bottom temperatures and compare results with measured flow velocities. Our reference simulation reproduces the general flow pattern and the magnitudes of the flow velocities reasonably well. The ice flow is found to be very …
