 +This second paper explores Greenland climate scenarios and forcing experiments from the 31 member [[http://​​isis/​index.php/​SeaRISE_Assessment|Sea-level Response to Ice Sheet Evolution (SeaRISE)]] project. ​ Although the
 +modeled responses are not always homogeneous,​ consistent spatial trends emerge from the
 +ensemble analysis, indicating distinct vulnerabilities of the Greenland ice sheet. There are
 +clear response patterns associated with each forcing (1. a change in oceanic condition, 2. a warmer atmospheric environment,​ and 3. enhanced basal lubrication). ​ Similar mass loss at the whole ice sheet scale will result in different mass losses at the regional scale. ​ All forcings lead to an increased mass loss for the
 +coming centuries, with increased basal lubrication and warmer ocean conditions affecting
 +mainly outlet glaciers, while the impacts of atmospheric forcings affect the whole ice sheet.  ​
