These data can be used to replicate the application of MWBMglacier as described in two journal articles: 1) Enhancement of a parsimonious water balance model to simulate surface hydrology in a glacierized watershed (in review), and 2) Hydrologic regime changes in a high-latitude glacierized watershed under future climate conditions (doi:10.3390/w10020128). These simulations provide results from historical and 12 future general circulation model scenarios for the period 1949-2099 to determine the potential effects of climate change on the hydrology and water quality of a snow-dominated mountainous environment. In addition to the inputs and outputs, this Data Release includes summaries of the input and output data in netCDF format.

Excluding this XML file, the file of inputs (, and the readme file (readme_netCDF.txt), all others contain information pertaining to simulation using a different set of climate data. Each of these is a different forecast, except for All zip files contain notes on the simulation, as well as the files listed in the readme_netCDF.txt file.
