oggm.core.massbalance.ScalarMassBalance#

class oggm.core.massbalance.ScalarMassBalance(mb=0.0)[source]#

Constant mass balance, everywhere.

__init__(mb=0.0)[source]#

Initialize.

Parameters
mbfloat

Fix the mass balance to a certain value (unit: [mm w.e. yr-1])

Methods

__init__([mb])

Initialize.

get_annual_mb(heights, **kwargs)

Like self.get_monthly_mb(), but for annual MB.

get_ela([year])

Compute the equilibrium line altitude for a given year.

get_monthly_mb(heights, **kwargs)

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.
