Once control runs are complete, experiments seek to quantify the ice sheet changes (specifically ice mass loss) resulting from imposed conditions on the ice sheet or its boundaries. Useful and feasible experiments are currently being fleshed out by the SeaRISE group. Agreed upon experiments are described below in sufficient detail for modelers to run the experiments and supply results to Sophie. The wiki format allows discussion of the experiments is they are either insufficiently clear or not feasible. Broad categories of model types, along with brief descriptions of experiments from the initial white paper can still be found in these links, Category 1: Whole Ice Sheet, Category 2: Ice-Stream/Ice-Shelf,Category 3: Ice-Shelf/Ocean.
