This item is part of the Climate model data presented in 'Climatic effect of Antarctic meltwater overwhelmed by concurrent Northern hemispheric melt' collection.

Dataset description

Output from a set of 9 global climate simulations for four transient scenarios of ice sheet meltwater contributions to the Meltwater Pulse 1a rapid sea level rise ~14.5 ka. The simulations were run with the HadCM3 general circulation model at the University of Leeds. They correspond to a 'background' meltwater flux (which comprises the first 525 years of all four meltwater pulse scenarios: teqjb) and the four transient meltwater pulse scenarios ('hiN_loS': teqjc + teqjg; 'hiS_loN': teqjd + teqjh; 'hiN_leads_loS': teqje + teqji; 'hiS_leads_loN': teqjf + teqjj), where the first simulation has a transient meltwater forcing for Meltwater Pulse 1a (teqjc, teqjd, teqje and teqjf, respectively), and the second simulation is a continuation returning to the 'background' meltwater flux (teqjg, teqjh, teqji and teqjj, respectively). All of these scenarios are fully described in the accompanying paper (Ivanovic et al., 2018, Geophysical Research Letters, doi: 10.1029/2018GL077623). The data is provided in NETCDF3 format within zipped directories corresponding to the meltwater scenarios. It consists of the freshwater forcing files (i.e. model input) and model output for each simulation. Model output is provided as time-series for a range of ocean, atmosphere and vegetation data. See the accompanying README.txt for a list of supplied output variables as well as more information on the directory structure for the supplied data.
