Comment:
Accumulation rate values were calculated de-straining the depth-age scale of Meese, Sowers, et al. 3 Versions correspond to 3 different ice dynamics situations, as described in Cuffey and Clow (1997). Each one assumes a different value for the retreat distance of the ice sheet margin during the deglaciation.
