Dynamic spinup#

OGGM offers an option for reconstructing the recent past of a glacier by using a dynamic spinup. For this dynamic spinup, you can choose if you want to match area OR volume at the RGI-date.

Further, this dynamic spinup can be combined with a dynamic \(\mu ^{*}\) calibration. This calibration also tries to calibrate \(\mu ^{*}\) to match geodetic MB data as described in Monthly temperature index model calibrated on geodetic MB data, but further takes a dynamically changing glacier geometry into account.
