Acknowledgements

Development of PISM is supported by NSF grants PLR-1644277 and PLR-1914668 and NASA grants NNX17AG65G and 20-CRYO2020-0052.

See Table 1 for the full list of grants that supported PISM development.

The Snow, Ice, and Permafrost group at the Geophysical Institute is the home for the University of Alaska PISM developers; find us in Elvey 410D. The Arctic Region Supercomputing Center (now RCS) has provided significant computational resources and technical help in the development of PISM.

Thanks for comments/questions from many PISM users around the world, including these not already listed as PISM authors:

Guðfinna Aðalgeirsdóttir, Antje Fitzner, Nick Golledge, Tore Hattermann, Moritz Huetten, Thomas Kleiner, Leo van Kampenhout, Marianne Madsen, Malou Maris, Tim Morey, Mirena Olaizola, Christian Rodehacke, Nathan Shemonski, Sebastian Simonsen, Anne Solgaard, Ben Sperisen, Synne Høyer Svendsen, Martin Truffer, Shuting Yang, Ryan Woodard

for helpful comments and questions on PISM and this Manual. Dave Covey, Don Bahls, and Greg Newby have supported our hardware, software, and computations. Bob Bindschadler, Sophie Nowicki, Jesse Johnson, and others in the SeaRISE group have motivated and assisted PISM development in many ways.

PISM includes the source code for two external libraries we rely on:
