Abstract: [1] We present a new three-dimensional thermomechanically coupled ice sheet model of the northern hemisphere to reconstruct the Quaternary ice sheets during the last glacial cycle. The model includes basal sliding, internally calculated surface mass balance, glacial isostasy, and a treatment for marine calving. The time dependent forcing consists of temperature and precipitation anomalies from the United Kingdom Meteorological Office (UKMO) General Circulation Model scaled to the Greenland Ice Core Project (G…
