On the point of view of a model developer, it looks somehow desperating to see how little sensitive climate models seem to be to the representation of sea ice processes. By comparison, atmospheric and oceanic forcing, or mean climate state look much more influential. Is this a good reason to give up sea ice model development ? I will give a few elements of answer to explain why we should maintain our efforts, and illustrate how the European teams involved in NEMO will project themselves into the next generation of sea ice models.
