oggm.core.massbalance.MassBalanceModel

class oggm.core.massbalance.MassBalanceModel[source]

Common logic for the mass balance models.

All mass-balance models should implement this interface.

Attributes:
valid_bounds : [float, float]

The altitudinal bounds where the MassBalanceModel is valid. This is necessary for automated ELA search.

__init__()[source]

Initialize.

Methods

__init__() Initialize.
get_annual_mb(heights[, year, fl_id, fls]) Like self.get_monthly_mb(), but for annual MB.
get_ela([year]) Compute the equilibrium line altitude for this year
get_monthly_mb(heights[, year, fl_id, fls]) Monthly mass-balance at given altitude(s) for a moment in time.
get_specific_mb([heights, widths, fls, year]) Specific mb for this year and a specific glacier geometry.
