Goals of the Working Group

The main goals are a) to update and enrich the GlaThiDa global ice thickness data base, b) to perform an intercomparison of existing models that derive ice thickness distributions of individual glaciers, and c) to model the ice thickness distribution of all glaciers of the Randolph Glacier Inventory (RGI).
