 Here is a quick methods summary, with more detail found in the paper and its supplementary material: ​ Emission scenarios, CO2 concentrations,​ and global mean temperature pathways are combined in an Earth system model and then downscaled to surface and ocean temperature anomalies for Antarctica. These regional warming scenarios are then used to force PISM, in particular using its positive-degree-day scheme to model surface melt and a three-equation model for subshelf melting. Here is a quick methods summary, with more detail found in the paper and its supplementary material: ​ Emission scenarios, CO2 concentrations,​ and global mean temperature pathways are combined in an Earth system model and then downscaled to surface and ocean temperature anomalies for Antarctica.
