Alder, J.R., and Hostetler, S.W., 2019, Data release for Applying the Community Ice Sheet Model to evaluate PMIP3 LGM climatologies over the North American ice sheets (ver. 2.0, February 2019): U.S. Geological Survey data release, https://doi.org/10.5066/F7ZK5FK2.

Summary

The data release consists of a single NetCDF file with results from a suite of ice sheet model simulations. We ran with Community Ice Sheet Model (CISM2) with input from models used in the Palaeoclimate Modelling Intercomparison 3 (PMIP3). The NetCDF file contains output from model year 50,000 for a limited number of variables to keep the file size reasonably small. This subset of variables are the ones we focus our analysis and paper on.

Purpose

The dataset is a sensitivity suite of positive degree factors used in an ice sheet model when forced with PMIP3 LGM simulations. The ice sheet model is applied to determine if LGM simulations have a temperature and precipitation climatology that would support a positive mass balance.
