An Open Source Tool for Visualizing ISM Intercomparisons

By Alex Becerra, sophie nowicki, Erika Simon

This tool produces visualizations from Seroussi et al. (2020). Soon users will be able to upload their own model simulations and visualize how these compare to the model simulations from Seroussi et al. (2020)

This tool is produces the visualizations from "ISMIP6 Antarctica: a multi-model ensemble of the Antarctic ice sheet evolution over the 21st century" (Seroussi et al., 2020). This international study presented various simulations for the evolution of the Antarctic ice sheet from 2015–2100. As there is a significant degree of uncertainty surrounding future climate and ocean conditions as well as the representation of various physical processes, the results of this model intercomparison demonstrate a significant degree of uncertainty regarding the mass loss that could contribute to future sea level rise in response to these forcings. Ultimately, this tool will allow users to explore the visualizations and model outputs from this study as well as create new visualizations and compute new model outputs from other datasets.
