The basis for our model is Marzeion et al 2012. However we implemented several changes:
- change model to output monthly information
- completely rewrote it to run more efficiently
- implemented a workflow to have the model run automatically once new ERA Interim data is available.
- minor bug fixes
The input data we use:
- CRU data as this the data with which the model is calibrated
- ERA Interim analysis. To introduce the data into our model we use anomalies in relation to a 1979 – 2009 climatology
- Randolph glacier inventory
A more detail description of the model is in preparation for publication.
