Hi Jiping, I transfer your question to MITgcm Support mailing list, as this may be useful for other and as my answer will not be complete.

Folks that have a lot of expertise with these two configurations are Gunnar Spreen and An Nguyen.
Recently the 4-km configuration was adopted by Prof. Bruno Tremblay's group at McGill.

References that discuss results from these two configurations are:
A. Nguyen, R. Kwok, and D. Menemenlis, 2012: Source and pathway of the Western Arctic upper halocline in a data-constrained coupled ocean and sea ice model.<http://ecco2.org/manuscripts/2012/NguyenJPO2012.pdf> J. Phys. Oceanogr., 43(5), 802-823.
E. Rignot, I. Fenty, D. Menemenlis, and Y. Xu, 2012: Spreading of warm ocean waters around Greenland as a possible cause for glacier acceleration.<http://ecco2.org/manuscripts/2012/Rignot2012.pdf> Annals of Glaciology, 53, 257-266.

Some description of how to set up these two configurations is available here:
but I created these two directories quite some time ago, so things have
evolved, especially with SEAICE_OPTIONS.h and data.seaice.

An, Gunnar, or Bruno, are there updated descriptions of these two configurations somewhere easily accessible?

Dear Dimitris Menemenlis,

I am not sure if you remember me. We met on the Ocean Synthesis and Air-Sea flux evaluation Workshop at Woods Hole. I expressed my interest in the Arctic configuration of MITgcm. Can you please tell me who is the best person to contact for the latest version of the Arctic configuration of MITgcm (code and data)? I want to run the model on 9km and 4km resolutions. Thanks much.
