An open source glacier model in Python¶
The model builds upon Marzeion et al., (2012) and intends to become a global scale, modular, and open source model for glacier dynamics. The model accounts for glacier geometry (including contributory branches) and includes a simple (yet explicit) ice dynamics module. It can simulate past and future mass-balance, volume and geometry of any glacier in a fully automated workflow. We rely exclusively on publicly available data for calibration and validation.
The project is currently in intense development. Get in touch with us if you want to contribute.
