We have run the first ocean/ice-sheet simulations based on the NEMO-Elmer/ice coupled model.
Below is an example of the advance/retreat coupled experiment proposed by Asay-Davis et al. (2016) in the context of MISOMIP1. It shows the evolution of the melt rate, ice draft, and ocean temperature, for 100 years under warm conditions, followed by 100 years under cold conditions.
