Computes the Flowline along the unglaciated downstream topography
The idea is simple: starting from the glacier tail, compute all the routes to all local minima found at the domain edge. The cheapest is “The One”.
The rest of the job (merging centerlines + downstream into one single glacier is realized by
where to write the data
- Files written to the glacier directory:
A dictionary containing the downstream line geometry as well as the bed shape computed from a parabolic fit.
