The CICE Consortium is a group of stakeholders and primary developers of the Los Alamos sea ice model (CICE), formed to maintain the current CICE model for existing and new users, to incorporate and maintain new research and development, and to accelerate scientific sea ice model development and its transfer into operational use.
The CICE model is the result of an effort to develop a computationally efficient sea ice component for use in fully coupled, atmosphere-ice-ocean-land global circulation models. Its development and maintenance have been led and coordinated by the Department of Energy since the early 1990s. Over the past two decades, a broad community of climate and weather forecasting groups has adopted the code, and in many cases, enhanced it. The CICE Consortium has formed as a vehicle for collaboration in sea ice model development.
