Definition: A model of mass balance in which ablation by melting and sublimation is estimated by solving the surface energy balance. Energy balance models require more input information than temperature-index models, but are preferred for being based on a more complete description of processes, and for superior accuracy when the input information can be supplied accurately.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
