Title: Modeling sea ice has impact far beyond the poles

Abstract

In the 1990s, a Los Alamos National Laboratory team developed a software package known as CICE that calculates the physics of sea ice, such as how it freezes, melts and moves across the ocean’s surface, influenced by external forces such as the ocean’s currents and the ever-shifting wind.
