Dear all,

I am modelling in some Andinian basins, with the Glacier module activated.
In the case of the Soil Moisture method, how Ice melt contributes to streamflow (in the conceptual diagram), as effective precipitation or directly as mass flow to the river unit. I couldn't found the information in the Help menu.

Thank you,
Dr. Diana Quevedo

Hola Miguel
Tengo la misma duda, ya que hice diferentes simulaciones alterando los parámetros que inciden sobre la nieve y hielo, y el caudal total al cierre de la cuenca de estudio, es insensible al aporte glaciar, no as� al derretimiento de nieve.
Agradezco cualquier comentario al respecto.
Saludos, Diana.

Dear Miguel
I have the same question. I performed several WEAP scenarios changing snowpack and glacier parameters and I realized that total streamflow is insensitive to ice melting, but not to snow melting.
Thank any comments about it.
Best,
Diana.

Dear all,
in my experience, if you are not sending water to groundwater module you can directly check the glacier streamflow as part of the surface runoff model output. This output is the sum of glacier contribution and surface runoff.

Best,
Felipe
