Joint Sea Ice Modelling Programme (JSIMP)
JSIMP is a collaboration between the Met Office, CPOM, NOC and BAS, which aims to provide UK users with the best possible configurations and physics of the sea ice model CICE updated on a regular basis.
JSIMP is currently co-chaired by Ed Blockley (Met Office) and Danny Feltham (CPOM, Reading). The broad roles of each partner are as follows:
CPOM: CICE physics pull-through which includes configuration and analysis of standalone version of CICE, as well as input to analysis of other configurations.
NOC: Lead on NEMO-CICE analysis and coupling to NEMO.
BAS: Analyses of ESM1, HadGEM3 and NEMO-CICE and investigation of model configurations and forcing required to realistically simulate Antarctic sea ice.
Met Office: Coupled model configuration including upgrades and testing. Coupling of sea ice to atmosphere and associated physics. Coupled model analysis.
