This dataset contains the initMIP-Antarctica model simulations from the Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project for CMIP6 (ISMIP6). As described in Nowicki et al. (2016) and Seroussi et al. (2019), the initMIP-Antarctica experiments focus on ice sheet initialization for the Antarctic ice sheet and associated uncertainty in sea-level projections.
See here for the protocol, participating models and requested model output data. Results of initMIP-Antarctica have been published in Seroussi et al. (2019). The dataset is also available on Zenodo. A brief overview of the participating models and characteristics is shown in the table below (Table 2 of Seroussi et al. (2019)).

The experimental protocol and datasets for the ISMIP6-initMIP-Antarctica standalone ice sheet simulations would not have been possible without the effort of many scientists that have given their time and expertise. Finally, we thank the ISMIP6 ice sheet modelers for their feedback on the design of the protocol and their willingness to participate in ISMIP6.
