Dear Colleagues,

We would like to invite you to a short, informal discussion at this year's AGU meeting in order to introduce the Community Ice Sheet Model, Glimmer-CISM. This effort emerges from a number of recent workshops which have stressed the need to address current ice sheet model shortcomings from a common platform. At present, Glimmer-CISM is a joint U.S./U.K. effort with support primarily from DOE, NSF, NASA, and NERC.

Glimmer-CISM is rapidly becoming a viable, open-source research platform for conducting continental and regional-scale investigations of higher-order ice dynamical phenomena. During the meeting, we will briefly summarize the current model design and features, review current and future development and release plans, and answer questions concerning community involvement.

The meeting will take place from 6-7 pm on Wednesday evening (December 16th) at the Marriott Marquis in room Sierra H (55 Fourth Street - a map can be found at the link below). We look forward to seeing you there.
