[ACG38-P26] Development of a climate/ice-sheet coupled model (MIROC-IcIES) for Greenland ice-sheet simulation
Keywords:Greenland ice-sheet, Ice-sheet modeling
We are developing a coupled model of a climate model MIROC and an ice-sheet model IcIES. In this study a coupling design of the model is described. A temperature-index model (such as the positive degree-day model) is introduced to compute the surface mass balance on the ice sheet at first, which will be expected to replace by land-surface models. Changes in discharge from the ice sheet and ice-sheet topography are introduced in the climate component. Preliminary results will be presented to study the effect of the interaction, e.g, off-line coupling.
