Earth System Models (ESMs) are becoming increasingly complex, requiring extensive knowledge and experience to deploy and use in an efficient manner. They run on high-performance architectures that are significantly different from the everyday environments that scientists use to pre and post-process results (i.e. MATLAB, Python). This results in models that are hard to use for non specialists, and that are increasingly specific in their application. It also makes them relatively inaccessible to the wider science community, not to mention to the general public. Here, we present a new software/model paradigm that attempts to bridge the gap between the science community and the complexity of ESMs, by developing a new JavaScript Application Program Interface (API) for the Ice Sheet System Model (ISSM). The aforementioned API allows Cryosphere Scientists to run ISSM on the client-side of a webpage, within the JavaScript environment. When combined with a Web server running ISSM (using a Python API), it enables the serving of ISSM computations in an easy and straightforward way. The deep integration and similarities between all the APIs in ISSM (MATLAB, Python, and now JavaScript) significantly shortens and simplifies the turnaround of state-of-the-art science runs and their use by the larger community. We demonstrate our approach via a new Virtual Earth System Laboratory (VESL) Web site.
