ABSTRACT
The article presents a study on GreenLand Ice Sheet ENhanced (GLISTEN), a one-dimensional model of the Greenland Ice Sheet (GIS) for analyzing future sea level rise. The study involved updating and extending the original GLISTEN model by improving its computational functionality and representation of physical processes such as precipitation, ablation, and basal sliding. The result showed that the added representation of processes in GLISTEN has improved the hindcast skill of paleo-observations.
