 We have written software which is free and open source. ​ Our international partners, like the Potsdam Institute (PIK) and other groups in Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, and the Netherlands,​ use our software, and they even add to it.  The collaboration is not very formal, but we have traveled both ways across the pole quite a bit!  They have chosen PISM over the several other available ice sheet models because it works well for them. We have written software which is free and open source. ​ Our international partners, like the Potsdam Institute (PIK) and other groups in Denmark, Germany, New Zealand, and the Netherlands,​ use our software, and they even add to it.  The collaboration is not very formal, but we have traveled both ways across the pole quite a bit!  They have chosen PISM over the several other available ice sheet models because it works well for them.
  
-The purpose of a model like this is to put your imperfect understanding of ice sheets into a form where you can see the consequences of your current understanding,​ and then try to understand better, and then change the model accordingly. ​ That's what we do, and that's what they do.
