Short summary
Mountain glaciers are one of the few remaining subsystems of the global climate system for which no globally applicable community-driven model exists. Here we present the Open Global Glacier Model (OGGM;, developed to provide a modular and open-source numerical model framework for simulating past and future change of any glacier in the world.
