1) Refinement of a regional scale model to include an approximation of the true 3D geometry of the orogen.
2) Develop a new local-scale model that incorporates topography, GPS data, and glacial erosion processes to refine the initial results.
3) Develop a modeling experiment to test the hypothesis that the rise and fall of ice masses during glacial cycles might influence where deformation is focused at any given time.
