Summary
Abstract: The MRI model is derived from an earlier version of the University of
California at Los Angeles (UCLA) model (cf. Arakawa and Mintz 1974 and
Arakawa and Lamb 1977 ). Subsequent modifications include increases in
vertical resolution, and changes in parameterizations of gravity-wave
drag, atmospheric radiation, convection, surface characteristics, and
land surface processes. The model is identical to latest AMIP model
MRI GCM-IIb (4x5 L15) 1995, except for different initial conditions
and the Earth's orbital parameters.

For the PMIP, MRI2 consists of runs 21, 6 and 0.
