Short summary
We present PARASO, a circumpolar model for simulating the Antarctic climate. PARASO features five distinct models, each covering different Earth system subcomponents (ice sheet, atmosphere, land, sea ice, ocean). In this technical article, we describe how this tool has been developed, with a focus on the coupling interfaces representing the feedbacks between the distinct models used for contribution. PARASO is stable and ready to use but is still characterized by significant biases.
