I always thought that it would be very hard to get the Oerlemans & Nick (2005) parameterization in OGGM’s flowline model. As it turns out, getting something to work was not so hard after all. This is very much a work in progress, but it should get the ball rolling for more advanced treatment of frontal ablation with OGGM in the future (stay tuned!).
Many thanks to David Rounce who persevered in convincing me that it shouldn’t be “that hard to implement”, and Lizz Ultee for her expertise and advice.
