The NPS 18 km Stand-Alone Sea Ice Model
The NPS 18 km resolution Stand-Alone Sea Ice Model
A switch for using viscous-plastic ice rheology of
Hibler (1979) with more efficient numerics of Zhang and Hibler (1997)
or using elastic-viscous-plastic ice rheology of Hunke and Dukowicz
Parkinson/Washington (1979) surface heat budgets.
Zero-layer thermodynamics of Semtner (1976).
Atmospheric forcing: 1983-1984 3-daily mean ECMWF
reanalysis data. Specifically 10 m winds, 2 m temperature and
dewpoint, surface downward longwave and shortwave radiation.
Oceanic forcing: 1983-1984 3-daily mean output from
the NPS 18 km coupled ice-ocean model. Specifically, 10 m
(first level) Temperature and Salinity, 32.5 m (2nd level) u and v
