Kaolin Model Glaciers
Abstract:A mixture of approximately one part of water to two parts of kaolin (china clay) has proved suitable for making model glaciers on scales between 1 : 1000 and 1 : 10,000. The kaolin “glaciers” crevasse and flow realistically, and slide on their beds. They serve well for qualitative demonstrations, and some simple preliminary quantitative experiments suggest that they may also be useful for this purpose.
