Summary
Abstract: SICOPOLIS (SImulation COde for POLythermal Ice Sheets) is a 3-d dynamic/thermodynamic model which simulates the evolution of large ice sheets. It was originally created as a part of the doctoral dissertation by Greve (1995) in a version for the Greenland ice sheet [English journal publications: Greve (1997a,b)]. Since then, SICOPOLIS has been developped continuously and applied to problems of ... View entire text
