Energy Budget- and Temperature Index- based Calculations of Seasonal Mass Balances and Discharge in the Tropical Glacier Artesonraju and Artesoncocha Basin in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru
The core of the present Doctoral study deals with glacier simulations for calculating mass balance and discharge in the Artesonraju glacier and Artesoncocha basin, in the Cordillera Blanca (CB), Peru. For this purpose, two different models are used. One is an energy-model (EBM) which is physically based and uses energy fluxes measurements on the glaciers, whereas the other one is a temperature index model (TIM) which is empirical and uses mainly temperature and precipitation as its main input data. An analysis of ...
