National Science Foundation Grant XXX "The New Generation: A Community Ice Sheet Model for Educators and Scientists" sought to increase participation in ice sheet modeling by improving the communities capacity to

  1. access and utilize the present generation of ice sheet models.
  2. Improve the quality of ice sheet models both in terms of the scientific merit of the modeling approach and the quality of the underlying software.
  3. understand the outcome of ice sheet modeling experiments.
Antarctica: Ice thickness over topography.

Navigation

Software

Find the software developed as part of this effort. This includes the Interactive System for Ice sheet Simulation (ISIS), a version with a simplified interface for high school educators (eduISIS) and the Community Ice Sheet Model (CISM).

Outreach

eduISIS was used to develop inquiry based curriculum for secondary school students.

Documentation

Primers on ice sheet modeling, information about the models, tutorials on usage, etc.

Data

Additional data for conducting investigations with ice sheet models.

Community Building

Considerable effort was put into creating a community and collaboration structure for advancing ice sheet modelings. Find out about those efforts here.
