[From 2017 Sandia Labs Accomplishment Magazine]

As part of the five-year multi-institution DOE/SciDAC project PISCEES, Sandia has developed a land-ice simuluation code that has been integrated into DOE’s Accelerated Climate Model for Energy earth system model for use in climate projections.  The Albany/FELIX code enables the calculation of initial conditions for land-ice simulations, critical for stable and accurate dynamic simulations of ice sheet evolution and the quantification of uncertainties in 21st century sea level rise.  With NASA, the team has successfully validated simulations in comparison to actual Greenland ice sheet measurements.
