Abstract

Theoretical work on glacier dynamics led to the construction of mathematical models for estimating glacier response to different climate change scenarios [2]. The aim of this work is to include a simple version of such models (the so-called Minimal Glacier Models [6]) within a GIS framework, to better understand, evaluate and reproduce the glacier response to climate fluctuations. Then, in this work three sections have been included: (I) the formulation of the Minimal Glacier Models, evaluating physical laws and numeric resolution; (II) the description of a GIS algorithm to calibrate and to validate the simulated results; (III) the application of GRASS – GIS module to obtain a spatial representation of glacier retreat
