Diagnostics from the ice model are written to an ASCII file that contains
information from the compilation, a record
of the input parameters, and how hemispherically averaged, maximum and minimum
values are evolving with the integration. Certain error conditions detected
within the ice setup script or the ice model will also appear in this file.
Upon the completion of the simulation, some timing information will appear
at the bottom of the file.
The file name is of the form ice.log.$LID, where $LID is
a timestamp for the file ID. It resides in the executable directory.
The frequency of the diagnostics is determined by the namelist parameter
