Goddard Institute for Space Studies General Circulation Model II
Entry ID: NASA_GISS_GCM_MODELII

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Goddard Institute for Space Studies General Circulation Model II, described
fully by Hansen et al. (1983), is a three-dimensional global climate model that
numerically solves the physical conservation equations for energy, mass,
momentum and moisture as well as the equation of state. The standard version of
this model has a horizontal resolution of 8 degree latitude by 10 degree
longitude, nine
layers in the atmosphere extending to 10 mb, and two ground hydrology layers.
The model accounts for both the seasonal and diurnal solar cycles in its
temperature calculations.
