Dear community, the vHub ( will be migrating to become Ghub ( on August 19th, 2022. All existing Ghub and vHub resources will continue be made available through this site after the migration. If you have any questions, please contact us at close

Browse Tools

Tools contributed by the 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 the tools here, and contribute your own.

HPC-based tools

These 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.

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.
