AbstractThis report documents the computer code of an iceberg drift model intended for endusers. The computer program keeps track of the dynamics, drift and deterioration of individual icebergs. The code allows the user to access and modify the input and output files. The users can thus incorporate information that may be locally available, which may enhance the accuracy of the forecast. The model also makes it convenient for the user to test various scenarios of environmental forcing and estimate the effect of uncertainties regarding, for example, the iceberg geometry.
