Short Name:

Global Glacier Debris Thickness Estimates and Sub-Debris Melt Factors V001

This data set includes spatially distributed estimates of the debris thickness and sub-debris melt enhancement factors for every debris-covered glacier in the Randolph Glacier Inventory Version 6, excluding the ice sheets and Antarctic Periphery. The debris thickness estimates are derived using a novel approach that uses a combination of sub-debris melt inversion and surface temperature inversion methods. The sub-debris melt enhancement factors are estimated from the debris thickness using debris thickness-melt curves normalized by estimates of the clean-ice melt.
