oggm.tasks.mass_conservation_inversion(gdir, glen_a=None, fs=None, write=True, filesuffix='')[source]

Compute the glacier thickness along the flowlines

More or less following Farinotti et al., (2009).

Parameters: gdir : oggm.GlacierDirectory the glacier directory to process glen_a : float glen’s creep parameter A fs : float sliding parameter write: bool default behavior is to compute the thickness and write the results in the pickle. Set to False in order to spare time during calibration. filesuffix : str add a suffix to the output file

Notes

Files writen to the glacier directory:
inversion_output.pkl
List of dicts containing the output data from the inversion.
