Water flowing through moulins generally reaches all the way to the bottom of the ice sheet, creating a more slippery surface that accelerates the glacier's flow, so understanding moulin structure and dynamics can be useful in the study of meltwater activity and sea level rise.
Vertical shafts in the ice sheet, called moulins, can funnel melt water beneath parts of the glacier and lift them up.
Each summer, as the top layer of ice melts, the resulting water works its way down into the glacier itself through shafts known as moulins.
