Glacier Climbing

Students model the movement of a valley glacier by using a cornstarch mixture to test the rate at which it flows when poured on a titled surface. Students model how a valley glacier flows by using a super thick, viscous fluid. They identify trends in the distribution of glaciers and how this distribution affects climate.
