oggm.global_tasks.compile_ela

oggm.global_tasks.compile_ela(gdirs, filesuffix='', path=True, csv=False, ys=None, ye=None, years=None, climate_filename='climate_historical', temperature_bias=None, precipitation_factor=None, climate_input_filesuffix='')[source]

Compiles a table of ELA timeseries for all glaciers for a given years, using the PastMassBalance model.

The file is stored in a hdf file (not csv) per default. Use pd.read_hdf to open it.

Parameters
gdirslist of oggm.GlacierDirectory objects

the glacier directories to process

filesuffixstr

add suffix to output file

pathstr, bool

Set to “True” in order to store the info in the working directory Set to a path to store the file to your chosen location (file extension matters)

csv: bool

Set to store the data in csv instead of hdf.

ysint

start year

yeint

end year

yearsarray of ints

override ys and ye with the years of your choice

climate_filenamestr

name of the climate file, e.g. ‘climate_historical’ (default) or ‘gcm_data’

climate_input_filesuffixstr

filesuffix for the input climate file

temperature_biasfloat

add a bias to the temperature timeseries

precipitation_factor: float

multiply a factor to the precipitation time series default is None and means that the precipitation factor from the calibration is applied which is cfg.PARAMS[‘prcp_scaling_factor’]
