Abstract

This paper uses a numerical ice sheet model to investigate the role of topography in influencing ice sheat growth. The model is applied to the maritime, mid-latitutde uplands of Scotland and relies on a series of assumptions about mass balance, topography, and ice flow. It is driven by an imposed pattern of temperature change. The model is able to predict effectively the extent and thickness of the Loch Lomond ice sheet, using a palaeotemperature curve based on Coleoptera assemblages
