The folder is provided as a .tar.gz file. This can be uncompressed using a command (linux) such as: tar -xf archive.tar.gz or in Windows using 7zip.
Within the folder is output from a numerical model simulation of the former British Irish Ice Sheet, modelled using PISM: https://www.pism.io/
The netcdf file contains several variables, output every 100 years:
- thk - ice thickness
- uvel - ice velocity in the x direction
- vvel - ice velocity in the y direction
- mask - a mask of ice cover
This can be viewed using the ncview software and manipulated in python using packages such as netCDF4 and xarray.
