The physically-based melt model Tethys-Chloris and meteorological input data for five Peruvian glaciers

Weather station data at five on-glacier stations in Peru and the ecohydrological model Tethys-Chloris.
Data includes:
- Hourly weather station data from Shallap Glacier, Artesonraju Glacier, Cuchillacocha Glacier, Quisoquipina Glacier and Quelccaya Ice Cap. Given as .csv files and as model input files.
- The model code used to input the data and set the correct parameters for these sites.
- The model code for the point version of Tethys-Chloris, an ecohydrological model which is used in this case to calculate glacier melt and mass balance.

Provenance & quality

The weather station data were cleaned to remove erroneous data and gaps were filled using data from nearby off-glacier stations or in some cases data from the WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) climate model. Source data were provided by co-authors and Peruvian institutions.
The Tethys-Chloris model was provided by Simone Fatichi with some modifications by the team during the project.
