MAIC2
Revision 19

The Mars AtmosphereIce Coupler MAIC2 is a simple, latitudinal model, which 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 in the publication by Greve et al. (2010).
The model equations of MAIC2 are discretised by a finitedifference/finitevolume scheme. Coding is done in the programming language Fortran 90.
Required model forcing (as functions of time):
Output (as functions of latitude and time):
