Ice Sheet Balance Flux computer code BalanceV2.f
Entry ID: ASAC_1261_Balance_Code

Abstract: Ice Sheet Balance Flux computer code BalanceV2.f

Fortran computer source code.

This program computes the ice fluxes and optionally the ice velocities that would maintain an ice sheet of specified shape (surface elevation) in equilibrium with a prescribed ice accumulation distribution. Inputs: regular orthogonal gridded datasets of ice sheet surface elevation, ice accumulation, and (for ... View entire text
