Statement: Global Grids of Ice Sheet Thickness and Paleotopography for 21,000 - present day
Abstract: The ICE-5G (VM2) model mathematically analyses glacio-isostatic adjustment processes and provides model data on global ice sheet coverage, ice thickness and paleotopography at 10 min spatial resolution for 21ka and 0ka, and at 1degree spatial resolution for intervals in between these snapshots. These are NETCDF files.
|Data resolution:||10min resolution to 1 deg. resolution|
Spatial data coverage: Global
Temporal data coverage: Time series
Time period covered: 21KBP - Present model simulation
