Elmer/Ice and SeaRISE

ElmerIce SeaRISEIn Seddik and others (2012, Journal of Glaciology), Elmer/Ice was used to investigate dynamical changes of the Greenland ice sheet over 100 years under future climate conditions using the experiments provided by the SeaRISE assessment project. The full-Stokes approach is also compared with a shallow ice approximation model (SICOPOLIS) by means of the calculated evolution of the surface velocities, basal temperature and ice volume. More recently, the work has been extended to produce simulations over 200 years and the final results have been submitted to the SeaRISE project. Elmer/Ice is at present the only full Stokes model contributing to this multi-ice-sheet model community effort and the project is aimed to contribute to the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5).
