It looks like in some situations and some locations (coupled simulations at 1/4deg resolution from ecmwf for instance), ice can pile up excessively when using Prather advection scheme. This is probably a defect of this scheme (this is a known issue for the UMx scheme btw).
nemo3.6 also uses Prather but a limitation of ice thickness is added to make the model more robust. It was removed in nemo4.0 for some reason (I do not remember why).


Easy. Just plug the routine which limits ice thickness (Hbig) into Prather.
