Documentation for PISM, the Parallel Ice Sheet Model

Latest release

The current release of PISM is v1.0.

Source code

PISM is released as source code. To get started building PISM from sources, we suggest using Git to obtain the code:

git clone git:// pism1.0

This checks out the master branch. Using git means that we can easily distribute corrections (patches) to fix bugs.

Alternatively you can get a .tar.gz or .zip archive containing a tagged source code release.

See the Installation Manual for more on building from source.

There is also a rapidly-evolving development version.

Next steps

  1. See the User's Manual which contains several worked examples.
  2. See the documentation page.
  3. Any question about PISM is welcomed at
