Abstract: Topography and ice cover data files from the ICE-4G model. Data consists of
topographical heights at 1 Kyr intervals since the last glacial maximum.
Topographical heights are relative to paleo sea level.

The second data set consists of Ice-cover data at 1 Kyr intervals since the
last glacial maximum.
