Mars Atmosphere-Ice Coupler MAIC-2
The Mars Atmosphere-Ice Coupler MAIC-2 is a simple, latitudinal model that consists of a set of parameterisations for the surface temperature, the atmospheric water transport and the surface mass balance (condensation minus evaporation) of water ice. It is driven directly by orbital parameters. A detailed description of the model is given by Greve et al. (2010, 2012).
The model equations of MAIC-2 are discretised by a finite-difference/finite-volume scheme. Coding is done in the programming language Fortran 90.
