dc.description.abstract Internal ice strain rates have been measured along two boreholes drilled through Glacier de Tsanfleuron, Switzerland. Differences between these measurements and the output from a 3D numerical model of glacier motion have been minimized by a scheme that optimizes three rheological parameters in the constitutive equation for ice creep: the stress exponent n, the rate factor A, and a Lower Zone (basal ice) enhancement factor E LZ . Results suggest that a linear rheology dominated by diffusion creep (n = 1) is more appropriate for modelling ice flow in this relatively thin (generally en
