MOM-SIS-01 is our previous 1/10° ocean-sea ice model (now deprecated and replaced by ACCESS-OM2-01). It uses MOM5.1 with 0.1° lateral resolution at the Equator, tripolar in the north and Mercator projection down to 65°S and 75 vertical levels. The sea ice is SIS, coupled with the FMS coupler. The model can be forced using either CORE or JRA forcing sets. The model has been used in a range perturbation experiments and publications.
