CCR downtime is scheduled for Tuesday 28 September 2021. All cluster nodes will be updated and rebooted. Details: close

Browse Data

Datasets contributed by the scientific community enable users to study ISMIP6 model outputs, compare and visualize model and experimental results, and more. Some data is available through the scientific community, while other data is maintained through other agencies and groups.

Datasets available at GHub

Several datasets are stored at University at Buffalo CCR, available for computations staged on the computing cluster and accessible using Globus APIs and portal. Others are housed on the GHub server and are directly accessible below. For a complete list of datasets available on GHub, go to the Resources Page.

Other ice sheet science datasets

Here we link to collaborators and other institutions hosting useful resources for ice sheet data.


Pangeo Gallery

Browse Pangeo use cases using the notebooks in this gallery. Load, analyze and plot commonly used glaciological and other datasets.

National Snow and Ice Data Center

Choose from hundreds of scientific data sets, focusing on the cryosphere and its interactions. These data, collected by satellites and field observations, come from NASA, NSF, NOAA, and other programs.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Paleoclimate Data

These data are derived from natural sources such as tree rings, ice cores, corals, and ocean and lake sediments. These proxy climate data extend the archive of weather and climate information hundreds to millions of years.

National Center for Atmospheric Research: Climate Data Guide

These data sets cover the earth's atmosphere, ocean, land and more. Explore climate indices, reanalyses and satellite data and understand their application to climate model metrics.

NASA Sea Level Change Portal

This portal hosts NASA sea level science and interdisciplinary research tools.

European Space Agency Climate Data Dashboard

This dashboard's climate knowledge and technical capabilities from across ESA Member States supports research and development.
