Summary
Abstract: The GISS model used for the PMIP experiment is a modified version of
Model II that is described by Hansen et al. (1983) . The current model
(described by Hansen et al., 1997) differs from this predecessor
principally in numerics and in the treatment of convection, planetary
boundary layer (PBL), large-scale clouds, and ground hydrology.

For the PMIP, GFDL consists of runs 6.
