VIC: Soil parameters for glacier and snow
« on: March 19, 2019, 10:27:23 AM »
I have glaciers and snow in my study area and to create the soil parameters file, I want to put the soil properties of glaciers. I have gone through the manual for VIC created by Tennessee Tech University but couldn't find any information about glacier area.
Where can I find soil properties for glaciers.

Does glaciers have any soil properties? Maybe treat them as water bodies?

Ok after considering the glaciers as water bodies, should I have to define their soil properties in soil parameter file?
