Summary
Abstract: CCM3:
The Atmospheric model is the fourth generation NCAR Community Climate Model
(version 3: CCM3). The CCM3 is an evolution of the CCM2 as described by Hack
and al (1993,1994) and CCM2 is the historical descendant of the CCM1 model (cf.
Williamson et al. 1987 and Hack et al. 1989 ), but with most dynamical and
physical parameterizations qualitatively changed. The NCAR CCM2 model is also
