oggm.global_tasks.get_ref_mb_glaciers

oggm.global_tasks.get_ref_mb_glaciers(gdirs, y0=None, y1=None)[source]

Get the list of glaciers we have valid mass balance measurements for.

To be valid glaciers must have more than 5 years of measurements and be land terminating. Therefore, the list depends on the time period of the baseline climate data and this method selects them out of a list of potential candidates (gdirs arg).

Parameters
gdirslist of oggm.GlacierDirectory objects

list of glaciers to check for valid reference mass balance data

y0int

override the default behavior which is to check the available climate data (or PARAMS[‘ref_mb_valid_window’]) and decide

y1int

override the default behavior which is to check the available climate data (or PARAMS[‘ref_mb_valid_window’]) and decide

Returns
ref_gdirslist of oggm.GlacierDirectory objects

list of those glaciers with valid reference mass balance data
