Hi. In previous versions the software asks for an initial glacier area for each catchment. Now in current version (2016.01) you have to enter an initial ice depth. Is this the average equivalent of the relation Volume/Area of the glaciar, assuming V=f(b,c)?
Where can I see the mathematical relations of input parameters?

Yes, that is the average equivalent Volume/Area. All branches in a catchment will have the same ice and snow depth if climate data are entered at the catchment level.
For the equations used for calculating glaciers, see the help topic for calculating the Soil Moisture Method:
