Virtual Earth System Laboratory (VESL) NOAA – JPL

The “Virtual System Laboratory” provides simulations of:

  • Glaciers flow and sensitivity to  climate
  • Ice sheets flow and sensitivity to climate and forcing
  • Sea level rise and contribution from the cryosphere
  • Process undergone by the Earth’s Lithosphere and Mantle
