Summary
Abstract: The UKMO HADAM2 model part of the line of Unified Models (UM) intended
to provide a common framework for forecasting and climate applications
(cf. Cullen 1993 ). The dynamical formulations are those described by
Bell and Dickinson (1987); the physical parameterizations are
substantially modified from those of an earlier UKMO model documented
by Slingo (1985) .
