Summary
Abstract: This is the third in a series of models developed at MPI that derive
from an earlier version (cycle 17) of the operational forecast model
of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF). The
present MPI model retains some features (more in numerics and dynamics
than in physics) of the ECMWF model. The model is identical to latest
PMIP model exept for different initial conditions and the Earth's
orbital parameters.

For the PMIP, ECHAM3 consists of runs 21, 6 and 0.
