Documentation for PISM, the Parallel Ice Sheet Model

ice sheet information and data

other open source ice sheet models

  • the Community Ice Sheet Model is an open source ice sheet model which serves as the ice dynamics component of CESM
  • SICOPOLIS(Simulation COde for POlythermal Ice Sheets) is a 3-d dynamic/thermodynamic model which simulates the evolution of large ice sheets
  • the ELMER ice sheet model is an open source multiphysics simulation package adapted to simulations of ice sheets and glaciers
  • ISSM (Ice Sheet System Model) is an open source finite element model at NASA JPL which supports several stress balances

collaborations and intercomparisons

  • the SeaRISE assessment process in the US plans to contribute model-based estimates of century-scale sea level changes from ice sheet and ice shelf dynamics to the IPCC AR5 report in 2013
  • ice2sea is a European effort which is somewhat comparable to SeaRISE
  • EISMINT (European Ice Sheet Modeling INiTiative) is a past intercomparison effort to test and compare existing numerical shallow ice-sheet, ice-shelf, and glacier models as they were run by several groups worldwide
  • ISMIP (Ice Sheet Model Intercomparison Project) continues intercomparison, including less-shallow and Stokes models (ISMIP-HOM) and rapid sliding events (ISMIP-HEINO)
  • MISMIP is an intercomparison of flowline marine ice sheet models
  • MISMIP3D is an ice2sea-sponsored intercomparison of three-dimensional marine ice sheet models
