Abstract

The robustness of a simple flow-line model has been tested against new data from Storglaciären. The model appears robust for given subglacial geometry. A realistic longitudinal profile and acceptable ice surface velocities were generated. The model has been tested in a series of sensitivity experiments, and was found to react strongly to changes in climatic parameters. Due to uneven subglacial topography underlying Storglaciären, its behavior is non-linear and prone to considerable hysteresis. From these experiments it appears that Störglaciären was not in balance with its climate when it reached its maximum historic extent in 1915
