Summary:Your team has been charged with the task of using a model to analyze glacial ice flow before ad after the collapse of an ice shelf. In order to compare the flow of ice, you will need to track a point on the surface of the glacier and measure the movement over time. The data that you collect will be used as evidence to construct an explanation of the question: How do ice shelves play a role in sea level rise?
