Summary
Abstract: The Community Sea Ice Model (CSIM) is a dynamic-thermodynamic model that
includes a subgrid-scale ice thickness distribution. It uses the energy
conserving thermodynamics of Bitz and Lipscomb (1999), with four ice layers and
one snow layer in each thickness category. The ice dynamics utilizes the
elastic-viscous-plastic rheology of Hunke and Dukowicz (1997). Subgrid-scale

Description: The Community Sea Ice Model (CSIM) is the sea ice component of CCSM that will
run uncoupled from the other CCSM components. The physics in the uncoupled ice
model are identical to those in the ice model used in the fully coupled system.
This release includes the CSIM source code, documentation, input and forcing
data.
