Chris35Wills/synthetic_channel_mesh: Synthetic channel meshing routine

Chris Williams

The code provided here enables the construction of synthetic channel geometry following Williams et al., 2017. This was developed as part of the BPOG (Basal Properties of Greenland) project.

An implementation of the code was used to construct fjord geometry and define elevations within fjords surrounding Greenland currently void of observational data for the new Greenland bed topography dataset - BedMachine v3.
