Open Source Finite Element Software for Ice Sheet, Glaciers and Ice Flow Modelling

Elmer/Ice is a full-Stokes, finite element, ice sheet / ice flow model. The aim of this website is to present the capabilities of Elmer/Ice and to distribute course materials and tutorials.
Elmer/Ice is an add-on package to Elmer, which is a multi-physics FEM suite mainly developed by CSC-IT Center for Science Ltd., Espoo, Finland. Initially started by CSC,  IGE and ILTS, currently multiple institutions and individuals contribute to the development of Elmer/Ice.

Elmer/Ice @EGU2019

The fifth Elmegu plainer/Ice users splinter meeting will take place Tuesday 9 April at 12h45, Room 2.61! This is an informal meeting, come with your sandwich and some slides you would like to share with the other Elmer/Ice users.
