Summary
Abstract: The global climate model used for PMIP is Version 2.0 of GENESIS
(Global ENvironmental and Ecological Simulation of Interactive
Systems). It has been developed at NCAR Interdisciplinary Climate
Systems Section. Its documented predecessor is GENESIS model version
1.02. The latter version is substantially different and has improved
present-day climatology compared to version 1.02. The model consists
