UCLA Numerical Weather Prediction Model
Entry ID: UCLA_AGCM

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The UCLA atmospheric GCM is a state of the art grid point model of the global
atmosphere extending from the Earth's surface to a height of 50 km. The model
predicts the horizontal wind, potential temperature, water vapor mixing ratio,
cloud water and cloud ice mixing ratios, planetary boundary layer (PBL) depth
and the surface pressure, as well as the surface temperature and snow depth
over land. ... View entire text
