In this paper we develop a theoretical model describing water motion in a coupled borehole-subglacial flow system. The theory applies to basal drainage systems having multiple and extensive interconnected flow paths. Within this domain it encompasses a broad range of flow regimes, from laminar Darcian flow in a thick permeable unit to turbulent sheet flow in a very thin layer. Important terms in the model are highlighted by recasting the problem in dimensionless form. The non-dimensional… Expand
