ISMASS publications:

Note that ISMASS facilitates science and is not a science actor or science programme. As such, peer-reviewed publications are not its main focus. However, ISMASS did publish the following review article in 2013:

Hanna, E., F.J. Navarro, F. Pattyn, C.M. Domingues, X. Fettweis, E.R. Ivins., R.J. Nicholls., C. Ritz, B. Smith, S. Tulaczyk, P.L. Whitehouse, H.J Zwally (2013). Ice-sheet mass balance and climate change. Nature, 498, 51-59, doi:10.1038/nature12238.

Pattyn, F., Ritz, C., Hanna, E., Asay-Davis, X., DeConto, R., Durand, G., Favier, L., Fettweis, X., Goelzer, H., Golledge, N., Munneke, P.K., Lenaerts, J.T.M., Nowicki, S., Payne, A.J., Robinson, A., Seroussi, H., Trusel, L.D., & van den Broeke, M., (2018) The Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets under 1.5oC global warming https://www.nature.com/articles/s41558-018-0305-8

Given the support that ISMASS has given and continues to give for ice sheet model intercomparison efforts, the following paper is worthwhile to mention:

X. S. Asay-Davis, S. L. Cornford, G. Durand, B. K. Galton-Fenzi, R. M. Gladstone, G. H. Gudmundsson, T. Hattermann, D. M. Holland, D. Holland, P. R. Holland, D. F. Martin, P. Mathiot, F. Pattyn, and H. Seroussi (2015) Experimental Design for three Interrelated Marine Ice-sheet and Ocean Model Intercomparison Projects. Geophysical Model Development Discussions 8, 9859-9924.
