A large-scale force budget is a relatively simple but useful tool for initial investigation of ice dynamics. However, identification of areas and assessment of data requires several steps. In this paper, velocities and surface topography are modelled numerically for Jutulstraumen drainage basin. The required measurement accuracy varies strongly over the basin, limiting the effective use of remote sensed data for deriving stresses. Radar altimetry surface elevation data can be used on the lower half of the plateau, and InSAR velocity data on the lower parts of the plateau and down-glacier
