This dataset contains the initMIP-Greenland model simulations from the Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project for CMIP6 (ISMIP6). As described in Nowicki et al. (2016) and Goelzer et al. (2019), the initMIP-Greenland experiments focus on ice sheet initialization for the Greenland ice sheet and associated uncertainty in sea-level projections.
The table below (from Goelzer et al. (2019)) provides a brief overview of the participating models and their characteristics.

The experimental protocol and datasets for the ISMIP6-initMIP-Greenland 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.
