Input files used to initialize the spin-ups

Description
Contains three initial-condition files. The initial-condition file, based on observations, is the same for all spin-ups at a given resolution and is named “ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.bedmachine2.ice_domain_mask.nc” (or similarly for other resolutions). In addition, there are four kinds of files for each set of experiment, resolution, melt_parameterization, and melt_calibration:

1. One or two config files (one used at initialization and one at restart): “ISMIP6_4km.config” and “ISMIP6_4km.config.restart” (or similarly for other resolutions)
2. A history file containing one time slice corresponding to the end of the spin-up and named “out_ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.nc”
3. A restart file (used to initialize forward runs), containing one time slice corresponding to the end of the spin-up and named “ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.1950_init.nc”
4. A time series file containing scalar output with a frequency of 10 years spanning the entire spin-up, named “out_ISMIP6_Antarctica_4km.scalars.nc”

Each file has a prefix string indicating the experiment, resolution, melt_parameterization, and melt_calibration. See the README file in the parent dataset for information on these values.
