CCR cluster downtime is scheduled for Tuesday 27 July 2021. CCR resources (Globus, UB-HPC, submit) will be unavailable. Details: close

GHub tool users: please note that these tools are currently being moved to Debian10 containers, and may not run as expected: cmctgm; cmcthistplot; crevasseoib; gisplot2. Thanks for your patience! close

Tools Listing

Tools contributed by the GHub community enable users to search for crevasses in the Greenland ice sheets, regrid ISMIP6 model outputs, compare and visualize model and experimental results, and more. Explore our tools here, and contribute your own.

HPC-based tools

These GHub tools use high-performance computing (HPC) resources at University at Buffalo CCR to access datasets and to perform parallel computations. All interaction with the computing cluster is handled by the tool, while users interact with a friendly user interface.


ATM-Based Crevasse Detection and Extraction Workflow

Implements Greenland ice sheet crevasse detection over a range of years and user specified parameters.

netCDF File Regridding Tool

Enables users to select multiple ISMIP6 model output files for conversion to an alternate grid size.

Cryosphere model Comparison tool (CmCt)--coming soon!


Model Comparison Tools

These Jupyter-based model comparison tools enable users to select models and observations to compare, evaluate, and plot. Users can then download the resulting high resolution plots for further analysis or presentation.


Greenland Ice Surface Temperature, Surface Albedo, and Water Vapor from MODIS Comparison Tool

Compares and plots user-selected attributes from MERRA-2 models of the Greenland Ice Sheet against MODIS measurements.

Ice Sheet Model Comparison Tool

Compares and plots a user-selected field or fields from multiple ice sheet models.

CmCt Histogram Tool

Plots comparison result statistics from runs of the Cryosphere model Comparison tool (CmCt).


Compares user-uploaded ice sheet models to the NASA GRACE Mascon product.

ISMIP6 Ice Sheet Model Scalar Variable Plotter

Compares and plots ISMIP6 scalar variables from different modeling centers against a reference dataset. This is a quick quality control tool to model scalar variables and units.
