Education and outreach are an important goal of the Ghub community! While the data products and results generated by scientists can sometimes seem daunting, it can also be pretty cool to see how it applies to everyone.

VESL visualization tools

These striking visualizations, hosted on NASA JPL's Virtual Earth System Laboratory (VESL), use the Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM) package.

Greenland Basal Friction simulation

Enables users to explore the effect of friction at Greenland's ice-bedrock interface.
