The New GISS ModelE
Entry ID: NASA_GISS_MODEL

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The latest incarnation of the GISS series of coupled atmosphere ocean models is
now available. ModelE (as it is called) is a complete rewrite of Model II'
physics, combined with greater flexibility and more options. These include
better representations of the stratosphere, tracer components and various ocean
models.

The frozen version that will be used for upcoming IPCC simulations and the
