A one-day workshop to discuss the results and further steps of initMIP. This effort focuses on the initialization of standalone ice sheet models used for projections and the impact of initialization on simulated ice sheet evolution. It represents the first suite of experiments for standalone ice sheet models from the Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project for CMIP6 (ISMIP6).
Specific goals of the workshop are:
More information about the initMIP effort can be found on the ISMIP6 wiki, which will soon be updated to include the description of the initMIP-Antarctica effort.
