  • In order to verify the feasibility and stability of a degree-day model on simulating the long time series of glacier mass balance, we apply a degree-day model to simulate the mass balance of Urumqi Glacier No. 1 for the period 1987/1988–2007/2008 based on temperature and precipitation data from a nearby climate station. The model is calibrated by simulating point measurements of mass balance, mass balance profiles, and mean specific mass balance during 1987/1988–1996/1997. The optimized parameters are obtained by using a least square method to make the model fit the measured mass balance through the model calibration. The model validation (1997/1998–2007/2008) indicates that the modeled results are in good agreement with the observations...

Abstract: In order to verify the feasibility and stability of a degree-day model on simulating the long time series of glacier mass balance, we apply a degree-day model to simulate the mass balance of Urumqi Glacier No. 1 for the period 1987/1988–2007/2008 based on temperature and precipitation data from a nearby climate station. The model is calibrated by simulating point measurements of mass balance, mass balance profiles, and mean specific mass balance during 1987/1988–1996/1997.
