Forward Experiment runs

Description
The Forward Control runs are runs with ESM thermal forcing anomalies. There are four kinds of files for each set of experiment, resolution, ESM, melt_parameterization, and melt_calibration:

1. A config file, “ismip6.config”
2. A history file containing one time slice corresponding to year 2500 and named “out_ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.nc” (or similarly at other resolutions)
3. A restart file, containing one time slice corresponding to the last saved time slice (could vary) and named “ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.restart.nc”
4. A time series file containing scalar output with a frequency of 1 year spanning the entire experiment, named “out_ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.scalars.nc”

Each file has a prefix string indicating the experiment, resolution, ESM, melt_parameterization, and melt_calibration. (The files for experiments DIVA_dT1 and DIVA_dT2 don't have an ESM component in the prefix string; a uniform forcing anomaly is applied to these.) See the README file in the parent dataset for information on these values. These can be used to filter the file list under Download Options to the subset of interest.
