Summary
Abstract: The global climate model used for PMIP is Version 1.02A of GENESIS
(Global ENvironmental and Ecological Simulation of Interactive
Systems). It has been developed at NCAR Interdisciplinary Climate
Systems Section. The model consists of an AGCM coupled to multilayer
models of vegetation, soil or ice land, snow, sea ice, and 50-m slab
oceanic layer. The AGCM originated from NCAR Community Climate Model
version 1 (CCM1, described in Williamson et al. 1987), but the physics
schemes differ significantly from those of CCM1

For the PMIP, GEN1 consists of runs 21 and 0.
