 +This paper uses PISM, calibrated against field-based evidence, to reconstruct the Cordilleran ice sheet'​s history through the last glacial cycle. ​ Until now, geological studies of this major North American ice sheet have lacked ice-sheet-wide spatial reconstructions.
 +Simulations are driven by time-dependent temperature offsets from six proxy records located around the globe. ​ Although model response to evolving climate forcing is variable, all simulations produce two major glaciations during marine oxygen isotope stages 4 (62.2–56.9 ka) and 2 (23.2–16.9 ka).  The timing of glaciation is better reproduced using temperature reconstructions from Greenland and Antarctic ice cores than from regional oceanic sediment cores. ​ During most of the cycle the modelled ice cover is discontinuous and restricted to high mountain areas. ​ However, a central ice dome in the Skeena Mountains persists throughout, and it hosts the last remains of Cordilleran ice into the middle Holocene (6.7 ka).
