Abstract

In these schemes the ice sheet and atomspheric forcing are run together for short synchronous periods (Ts), alternating with longer asynchronous periods (TA) during which the ice sheet is run with atmospheric information extrapolated from the previous synchronous period(s). Several asynchronous schemes are evaluated by comparing results with those from fully synchronous runs. The best overall results are obtained using a scheme in which the forcing during each asynchronous period is linearly extrapolated from its means in the previous two synchronous periods. -from Authors
