Short summary
Computational models that seek to predict the future behaviour of ice sheets and glaciers typically rely on being able to compute the rate at which a glacier slides over its bed. In this paper, I show that the degree to which the glacier bed is hydraulically connected (how easily water can flow along the glacier bed) plays a central role in determining how fast ice can slide.
