The CICE Consortium announces the availability of the Icepack v1.0, the Consortium's new sea ice column physics code.

This model includes all physical parameterizations from the CICE sea ice model that are limited to single grid-cell columns or Lagrangian elements, independent of the grid and other sea ice model infrastructure. Many aspects of the physics and biogeochemistry that were previously embedded in CICE version five now reside within Icepack, and new features have been added.

In addition to the column physics modules from CICE, this software package includes a stand-alone driver and automated testing using a comprehensive test suite.

To accompany this release, the accompanying dynamical core of the CICE Consortium sea ice modeling suite as part of CICEv6 will soon be released.
