Group: Summary

   This data set provides the results of predictive modeling experiments on the 
   Amundsen Sea Embayment region of Antarctica. The models examine how 
   interactions between basal processes and ice sheet dynamics can result in 
   abrupt reconfigurations of ice-sheets, and how those reconfigurations impact 
   other Earth systems. The models were developed by a collaborative effort 
   called the Community Ice Sheet Model (CISM).

   The data set contains a MATLAB (.mat) native format file with time evolution 
   of basal temperature fields from a generic ice sheet model with uniform and 
   non-uniform heat flux, a MATLAB script for performing singular value 
   decomposition and analysis of the model fields, and a summary of experimental 
   results in Portable Document Format (.pdf). Data are available via FTP.
