MassBalanceModel.get_monthly_mb(self, heights, year=None, fl_id=None)[source]

Monthly mass-balance at given altitude(s) for a moment in time.

Units: [m s-1], or meters of ice per second

Note: year is optional because some simpler models have no time component.

heights: ndarray

the atitudes at which the mass-balance will be computed

year: float, optional

the time (in the “hydrological floating year” convention)

fl_id: float, optional

the index of the flowline in the fls array (might be ignored by some MB models)

the mass-balance (same dim as heights) (units: [m s-1])
