A mixed-layer heat budget within the river plume shows that entrainment heat flux, usually the dominant upper-ocean cooling process, was limited because of the increased salinity stratification in the river plume area.
They looked at how much heat its climate could retain based on its initial heat budget, or the amount of heat and heat-producing elements present when a planet forms.

"Several lines of evidence support the conclusion that rapid basal melt of the TIS is driven by the flux of warm mCDW (modified Circumpolar Deep Water) into the cavity: the presence of warm water at the ice front, the existence of a deep trough providing access of this warm water to the cavity, direct measurements of mass and heat transport into the cavity, the signature of glacial meltwater in the outflow, and exchange rates inferred from the heat budget and satellite-derived basal melt rates."
This balance of energy flow (the heat budget) is the basis for determining sufficiency of cooling circuits in an existing mold and for designing new tooling.
Heat budget involves the total heat fluxes coming into or going out of a water volume.
2009), where the heat budget in April was governed by solar radiation and the estimate of the proportion of solar radiation passing through the ice and melting snow and ice was similar to ours.
