Summary
Abstract: The MSU model was developed in 1989 for climate applications. The
latest version of this model is significantly differ from the first
version:

a) it is used the simulation with seasonal resolution,

b) it is used the limited area model nested in global model (so called
MSU & LAMBLS )

c) it is used for more comprehensive surface scheme (looks like as Sib,
but using subgrid information about vegetation cover within each grid
box), including explicit description of the thermal regime of the
large lakes.

d) it is used more comprechensive parameterization of the snow cover.

For the PMIP, MSU consists of runs 21, 6 and 0.
