PMIP4-CMIP6 ice-sheet data

You will find on this page the boundary condition data that you have to use for the LGM and the Last Deglaciation experiments

Please make sure to read the HOWTO section in order to use the data correctly!

Get in touch with the following people if you have questions:

Masa Kageyama LGM
Ruza Ivanovic Last Deglaciation
Didier Roche LGM, Last Deglaciation
Jean-Yves Peterschmitt Technical questions

How to use the data

  • Choose the type of boundary condition you want to use. Look at the available data below, and at the ice-sheet gallery page.
    • Do not forget to document what you have chosen!
  • blahblah
  • After processing the boundary condition data, send a copy the BC data as seen by your model to Jean-Yves Peterschmitt: netCDF file and plot

Ice-sheet data

The input data for the boundary conditions is available in netCDF files provided by Dick Peltier and Lev Tarasov. You will find below some technical details about the data, and the related publications to cite

Data history

The data files may change a bit (rename or standardize the data, etc…) and you will find the change list below

Peltier ICE-6G-C for PMIP4

Grid

  • nb_lat, nb_lon = 1080, 2160 (regular 10 minutes intervals)
  • latitude_values = [ -89.91667175, -89.75, -89.58334351, … 89.58333588, 89.75 , 89.91666412 ]
  • longitude_values = [ 0., 0.16666667, 0.33333334, … 359.5, 359.66668701, 359.83334351 ]
  • NO time axis (1 time step per file)

Time steps and data files

  • 48 time steps in 48 files, from 0k to 26k BP : data every 500 years from 0k to 21k BP, then every 1000 years till 26k BP
  • file names = I6_C.VM5a_10min.<time_slice>.nc
    with <time_slice> in [0, 0.5, 1, …, 20, 20.5, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26]
  • all the variables for the same time step are in the same file

Variables

  • Topo: Topography (Point-value altitude), meters
    • on continents: surface altitude (including grounded ice sheet)
    • on ice-free oceans, and where there is floating ice (ice shelves): bathymetry
  • Orog: Orography (Point-value surface altitude), meters
    • on continents: altitude (including grounded ice sheet)
    • on ice-free oceans: 0.0 (zero)
    • on ice-shelves: surface altitude
  • sftlf: Point-value Landmask, %
    • values are 0 (not land) or 100 (land)
    • does not include floating ice
  • sftgif: Point-value Icemask, %
    • values are 0 (not ice) or 100 (ice)
    • floating ice is included

Notes:

  • Computing the sftlf-sftgif difference yields:
    • 100: where there is land without ice
    • -100: where there is floating ice-sheet
    • 0: elsewhere

Tarasov GLAC-1D for PMIP4

Grid

  • nb_lat, nb_lon = 360, 360
  • latitude_values = [ -89.75, -89.25, -88.75, … 88.75, 89.25, 89.75 ]
  • longitude_values = [ 0.5, 1.5, 2.5, … 357.5, 358.5, 359.5 ]
  • time axis: see the Time steps section below

Time steps and data files

  • 261 time steps in one file, from 0k to 26k : data every 100 years, from 0k to 26k BP
  • time_values = [ -26. , -25.9, -25.8, … -0.2, -0.1, 0. ]
  • all the variables and all the time steps are in the same file: TOPicemsk.GLACD26kN9894GE90227A6005GGrBgic.nc

Variables

  • HDC: GLAC contemp. elevation(masl), meters
    • on continents (including ice sheets) and ice shelves: surface altitude (including ice sheets/shelves)
    • on ice-free ocean: bathymetry
  • HDCB: GLAC contemp. elevation(masl), bathymetry for floating ice, meters
    • on continents (including ice sheets) and ice shelves: surface altitude (including ice sheets)
    • on ice-shelves: altitude of the bottom of the floating ice
    • on ice-free ocean: bathymetry
  • ICEM: GLAC ice mask, fraction
    • ice fraction values between 0.0 (no ice) and 1.0 (100% ice)

Notes:

  • The land-sea mask can be computed with:
    • HDCB > 0 : ls_mask = 1 (land)
    • HDCB ⇐ 0 : ls_mask = 0 (no land)
  • Computing the HDC-HDCB difference yields:
    • ice-shelves thickness where there are ice shelves
    • 0.0 everywhere else
