OGGM article and version 1.1.1

The Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM) team has recently published an article in Geoscientific Model Development, demonstrating the capabilities of the tool. OGGM version 1.1.1 includes several minor enhancements, including improved handling of merged glaciers, the option to add custom mass balance data, and ALOS World 3D 30m as an alternative DEM.

OGGM joins CryoTools

With the ‘Open Global Glacier Model‘ a comprehensive modelling suite for physiographic glacier characteristics and medium to long term glacier changes joins our community. Based on a modular and highly automatized workflow realized in Python, OGGM provides routines for investigating a variety of glaciological parameters, including flowlines, altitude-area distributions, mass balance, and ice thickness.
