“Toy models” for experimentation#

OGGM comes with a suite of simplified models allowing to run idealized or simplified experiments very useful for testing or teaching. Like all other mass balance models in OGGM, they folow the MassBalanceModel interface.

core.massbalance.ScalarMassBalance

Constant mass balance, everywhere.

core.massbalance.LinearMassBalance

Constant mass balance as a linear function of altitude.

core.massbalance.ConstantMassBalance

Constant mass balance during a chosen period.

core.massbalance.AvgClimateMassBalance

Mass balance with the average climate of a selected period (wrong!).

core.massbalance.RandomMassBalance

Random shuffle of all MB years within a given time period.

core.massbalance.UncertainMassBalance

Adding uncertainty to a mass balance model.
