Welcome to GHub
Welcome to Ghub! We’re glad you found us. Ghub is a centralized, one-stop-shop for all different types of ice sheet scientist (from those new to ice sheets to seasoned researchers), and for educators interested in ice sheet science. We gratefully acknowledge support by the US National Science Foundation; a pilot grant was funded in 2018, and a 5-year grant started in October, 2020.
You can cruise GHub for datasets, tools and education resources without an account. Account holders can develop and share tools on Ghub, and find many additional ways to collaborate (just request a free account). We are just getting started, much more is soon to come!
Ghub Mission Statement:
By 2025, we envision Ghub to be an oft-visited low-barrier online hub with ice sheet data and tools for educators and ice sheet scientists of all types.
Ghub aims to be:
Low Barrier: Ice sheet scientists from any domain, and educators, with limited programing experience, can easily find what they need on Ghub.
For ice sheet scientists: Ice-sheet models (future and paleo), field observations, remote sensing, reconstructions of ice sheet history.
For Educators: Some offering of visualizations and possibly web-based simple ice sheet models can be utilized by non experts.
A hub for data: Post “dark” and bring forward other key datasets of interest to modelers (e.g., relative sea level curves).
A hub for tools: Tools that can re-format large datasets for ingesting into models, re-format model output (observational data) for comparison with observations (model output). Tools that facilitate scientific analysis of complex dataset, and that can be easily adapted to a users needs.
