Welcome to OGGM-Edu!

This platform is an educational website about glaciers.

Our main goal is to provide tools and materials for instructors who want to teach about glaciers at school, in workshops or at the university. For example, OGGM-Edu was used to conduct a weeklong workshop on glaciology and glacial water resources for undergraduate Peruvian students.

OGGM-Edu has four independent components, serving complementary purposes:

  1. :ref:`title_apps`, to illustrate glaciological processes with the help of interactive graphics on the web. The targeted audience is very broad, from school children to adults, with or without scientific background.
  2. :ref:`title_graphics`, open access images and graphics that can be used for lectures or presentations.
  3. :ref:`title_notebooks`, for students willing to run and develop their own experiments. The targeted audience are students at the undergrad or graduate level with some programming experience, or under the supervision of an instructor who can show them how to run the experiments.
  4. :ref:`title_tuto`, for current and future users of the Open Global Glacier Model. These notebooks are targetting graduate students or scientists aiming to learn how the model works.

OGGM-Edu focuses on interactive content and numerical glacier experiments. We do not provide teaching resources about fundamentals in glaciology or climate science: for fundamental textbook material, refer to :ref:`other_resources`, which OGGM-Edu intends to complement.

Interactive apps

These interactive apps can be run on any computer with an internet connection.

Interactive Notebooks

Collection of notebooks with simple experiments explaining one or more glaciological concepts. They are relatively easy to follow and adapt with some background in programming, and we are working to make them as accessible as possible. Read our :ref:`notebooks_howto` first if you are new to these things.
