Abstract:
We present results from simulations of the Miocene Antarctic ice sheet, that were performed using the 3D thermodynamical ice-sheet model IMAU-ICE (v1.1.1-MIO). Five steady-state present-day simulations were conducted for reference (PI_ref), and 12 experiments using Miocene settings. Each Miocene experiment comprises 11 steady-state and 4 transient simulations. In the README file, the experiments and simulations are listed.
IMAU-ICE was run using a 40x40km grid covering the Antarctic continent. Initial conditions were obtained from reconstructions of the Antarctic bathymetry and bedrock topography pertaining to 23 to 24 million years (Myr) ago (dataset doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.923109). The simulations were forced by climate input data obtained from GENESIS simulations with varying CO2 levels (280 to 840 ppm) and Antarctic ice sheet cover (no ice to a large East-Antarctic ice sheet), and with present-day insolation. We utilized a matrix interpolation method to construct the time-varying climate forcing, based on the prescribed CO2 levels and ice cover simulated by IMAU-ICE.
For each simulation, we provide the run script, 1D output variables including CO2 level and the sea level contribution of the Antarctic ice sheet, and 3D output variables including ice thickness, bedrock and surface height, surface mass balance, basal mass balance, ice velocities, and ice temperatures.
