Definition: The ELA of a glacier in steady state. The steady-state ELA is difficult to estimate because glaciers are seldom if ever in steady state. It must usually be estimated by modelling. To emphasize that the Balanced-budget ELA and steady-state ELA are distinct concepts, the steady-state ELA should be given a distinctive symbol, perhaps ELA0.  IHPGlacierMassBalance
