Numerical Modelling

Glaciological Modelling

The first study will establish and calibrate a temperature and radiation based index-model of the surface mass balance of Zhadang Glacier. The model, based on ablation stakes measurements, AWS data and long term time-series from surrounding stations, is currently under development at the RWTH Aachen.

Mass balances
Modelled surface mass balances of Zhadang and Tangse River No.2 Glacier for the balance years 2005-2008

Current activities at the TU Berlin

The next study will focus on the downscaling capabilities of the WRF model over Zhandang´s high-altitude glaciological site.
