To compare two versions of the NEMO-LIM ocean-ice model, LIM2 and LIM3.

Results In terms of global sea ice, LIM2 has more sea ice than observed, while LIM3 is more realistic. Notably, both LIM2 and LIM3 have a too fresh Arctic with a weak thermocline, and a relatively weak AMOC which could be linked to a relatively high sea-ice transport from the Arctic to the East Greenland Current.
