We present 100 days of glacier motion and glacier hydrology data collected during the summer at Kennicott Glacier, Alaska.  A numerical model, motivated by these data and presented in concept in our 2008 Nature Geoscience paper, reproduces the salient features of our field data, including the basal motion response to diurnal water supply and a jökulhlaup.  Our model allows us to demonstrate the importance of englacial water storage and places constraints on the nature of sliding laws.
