Summary
Abstract: The 11-layer tropospheric/lower-stratospheric GCM is a descendent of
the 2-layer atmospheric GCM developed in the late 1960's and early
1970's by Arakawa and Mintz at UCLA , and subsequently developed and
used by Schlesinger during the past 24 years, first at the Rand
Corporation from 1973 to 1976, second at Oregon State University (OSU)
from 1976 to 1989 , and since 1989 at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. These modifications principally include an increase
in vertical resolution from 2 to 11 layers and substantial changes in
the treatment of atmospheric radiation, convection,
cloud/precipitation formation, and land surface processes.

For the PMIP, UIUC11 consists of runs 6 and 0.
