Abstract
The dataset consists of two tar files for two distinct sets of simulations. Each tar file contains a number of Netcdf files with model output for one simulation each, and also contains a DIF file (Directory Interchange Format, in xml form) with information on that part of the dataset. Set 1: There are 4 Netcdf files with output from the PSU 3D Antarctic ice sheet model including ice melange, showing role of melange in potentially providing buttressing and possibly slowing down ice retreat in strong climate warming scenarios. Set two: There are 2 Netcdf files with output from the PSU 3D Antarctic ice sheet model, for two future warming scenarios RCP4.5 and RCP8.5, contributing to oceanic meltwater discharge fields for future climate and ocean model simulations performed at Univ. Massachusetts by other PIs on the NSF project. More details on file names and model fields is provided in "Data Section" of the Readme file.
