Plume model videos
A simple view through a plume designed to resemble laboratory experiments. The rendering is created from a 3D model using volume transparency, where darker blue is lower density.
Model setup with a vertical glacier wall on the left side. Melt rate is plotted on the ice front as white (low) -> red (high). Density of the water is shaded with a volume transparency, as above, with blue (low) - white/transparent (high).
A test case for the time evolving mesh implementation with a uniformly distributed release of subglacial discharge along the base of the glacier terminus. Nodes on the ice boundary are moved proportional to the calculated melt rate blue (low) -> red (high).
