distribute_thickness_per_altitude(gdir, add_slope=True, smooth_radius=None, dis_from_border_exp=0.25, varname_suffix='')¶
Compute a thickness map by redistributing mass along altitudinal bands.
This is a rather cosmetic task, not relevant for OGGM but for ITMIX.
- gdir :
the glacier directory to process
- add_slope : bool
whether a corrective slope factor should be used or not
- smooth_radius : int
pixel size of the gaussian smoothing. Default is to use cfg.PARAMS[‘smooth_window’] (i.e. a size in meters). Set to zero to suppress smoothing.
- dis_from_border_exp : float
the exponent of the distance from border mask
- varname_suffix : str
add a suffix to the variable written in the file (for experiments)
- Files writen to the glacier directory:
- A netcdf file containing several gridded data variables such as topography, the glacier masks, the interpolated 2D glacier bed, and more.
