This package contains the HBV hydrological model but in modules, allowing the user to build his/her own HBV model. I developed it as part of my PhD thesis at IANIGLA-CONICET (Instituto Argentino de Nivología Glaciología y Ciencias Ambientales - Consejo Nacional de Investigaciones Científicas y Técnicas) for hydroclimatic studies in the Andes. HBV.IANIGLA incorporates modules for clean and debris covered glacier melt estimations.

Installation instructions


HBV.IANIGLA just depends on: - Rcpp (>= 0.12.0)

To install the dependencies, you can use the menu command Packages | Install in Rstudio, or just type:


Installing HBV.IANIGLA

You can download the complete package from CRAN repository as usual:



I strongly recommend to read the HBV.IANIGLA vignettes (vignette(package = "HBV.IANIGLA")). This documents will help you to understand how the model works.
