  • The text file (.csv) contains d18O changes simulated at six Greenland deep ice cores (NEEM, NGRIP, GRIP, GISP2, Camp Century and DYE3) from 69 simulations performed using the isotope-enabled HadCM3 climate model forced with mid last interglacial boundary conditions, centred at 125,000 years ago. HadCM3 is used to reproduce the d18O response to 69 modified Last Interglacial (LIG) Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) morphologies at the ice-core sites. To parameterise the set of 69 GIS morphologies, we undertake a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) approach. The text file also contains the 8PC coefficients for each of the 69 morphologies. The netcdf file (.nc) contains the 8PC shapes and the average shape. To obtain any of the 69 GIS morphologies: (1) store the 8 PC coefficients of a specific GIS morphology and, (2) take a linear combination of the PC shapes (according to those coefficients) and add the average shape. Funding was provided by the following grants: EPSRC-funded Past Earth Network (Grant number EP/M008363/1); NERC funding through grants NE/P009271/1, NE/P013279/1, NE/J004804/1, and Irene Malmierca''s PhD studentship.

  • These files are gridded topography, rates of surface elevation change, and errors as 500m and 1km posting determined from surface elevation measured by swath processing of data acquired by the interferometric radar altimeter CryoSat-2. The gridded products cover the Greenland Ice Sheet between 2011 and 2016. These data have been processed by the University of Edinburgh and are made publicly available as part of a European Space Agency funded project involving the University of Edinburgh, isardSat UK, University of Leeds-CPOM, ENVEO. Gridded elevation and elevation change over the CryoSat-2 LRM sector of the Greenland Ice Sheet are provided by CPOM. This dataset is part of ESA''s CryoTop Evolution project.

  • Analysis of surface elevation, bed topography and ice thickness across the Bailey/Slessor region of East Antarctica using data from the BEDMAP project.

  • A geodatabase of 186 published Quaternary marine and terrestrial dates relating to the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) glaciation and ice retreat, which capture the dynamics and retreat of the Antarctic Peninsula Ice Sheet (APIS).

  • These files are gridded topography, rates of surface elevation change, and errors as 500m and 1km posting determined from surface elevation measured by swath processing of data acquired by the interferometric radar altimeter CryoSat-2. The gridded products cover the Antarctic Ice Sheet between 2011 and 2016. These data have been processed by the University of Edinburgh and are made publicly available as part of a European Space Agency funded project involving the University of Edinburgh, isardSat UK, University of Leeds-CPOM, ENVEO. Gridded elevation and elevation change over the CryoSat-2 LRM sector of the Antarctic Ice Sheet are provided by CPOM.

  • In 2014 polarimetric phase sensitive radar data were collected at Korff Ice Rise, West Antarctica, with the aim of studying fabric within the ice column and ice bed properties. Data were collected at sites within 700m of one another along the axis of the ice divide. The radar data were collected by rotating the antenna through 180 deg to allow reconstruction of the azimuthal variation in power and phase. This study is part of the British Antarctic Survey programme Polar Science for Planet Earth. All data were collected with the support of the British Antarctic Survey. The ApRES fieldwork were funded by Natural Environmental Research Council grant NE/J008087/1, led by Richard Hindmarsh.

  • In 2015 long offset seismic gathers were collected at Korff Ice Rise, West Antarctica, with the aim of studying fabric within the ice column and ice bed properties. Data were collected at sites within 700m of one another along the axis of the ice divide. The seismic gathers were collected at 60 deg intervals to study azimuthal variation in seismic velocity and shear wave splitting. This study is part of the British Antarctic Survey programme Polar Science for Planet Earth. All data were collected with the support of the British Antarctic Survey.

  • This dataset consists of the time series of mass change of the Greenland Ice Sheet and its contribution to global sea level between 1980 and 2018 derived from satellite measurements. The dataset presented here is a reconciled estimate of mass balance estimates from three independent satellite-based techniques - gravimetry, altimetry and input-output method - and its associated uncertainty. This dataset is part of the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE). The total mass change as well as the partition between surface and dynamics mass balance are provided in this dataset. This work is an outcome of the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-Comparison Exercise (IMBIE) supported by the ESA Climate Change Initiative and the NASA Cryosphere Program. Andrew Shepherd was additionally supported by a Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award and the UK Natural Environment Research Council Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (cpom30001).
