Short summary
This paper presents the Fortran 90 source code for one-layer model GISS:IB on an icosahedral grid. The model solves the shallow water equations on the sphere using three symmetric horizontal components of angular momentum instead of velocity. One-layer shallow water models are a basic building block used in complex global weather and climate models.
