The symmetry group of the CAFFE model
Abstract:A new ice-sheet flow model called CAFFE (Continuum-mechanical Anisotropic Flow model based on an anisotropic Flow Enhancement factor) has recently become a source of considerable controversy within the glaciological community. Its main proponents (Placidi, Greve and Seddik) defend the thesis that this model can describe the effect of induced anisotropy on ice-sheet flow, while others assert that the CAFFE model is merely an isotropic model. Here I resolve this dispute by rigorously deriving the symmetry group of the CAFFE model.
