get_monthly_mb(self, heights, year=None, fl_id=None, fls=None)¶
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)
- fls: list of flowline instances, optional
the flowlines array, in case the MB model implementation needs to know details about the glacier geometry at the moment the MB model is called
- the mass-balance (same dim as heights) (units: [m s-1])
