Dear all,

this is to inform you that SICOPOLIS now includes the BedMachine V4 
topography for Greenland <https://nsidc.org/data/IDBMG4/versions/4>. I 
have downsampled it to resolutions of 4, 5, 8, 10, 16, 20 and 40 km, and 
the resulting input files are available in the Zenodo repository at 
<https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6371122>. As always, no need for manual 
download; after a `git pull` update you can simply run the script 
get_input_files.sh to retrieve the stuff.

As an example, the new run-specs header sico_specs_v5_grl16_bm4_ss25ka.h 
uses BedMachine V4 at 16 km resolution. Don't expect any great results 
though, it is still a simple steady-state test with SIA dynamics and 
without any tuning.
