A Coupled Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Model from the Meteorological Research Institute of Japan
Entry ID: MRI_Climate_Model
Abstract: [from http://www.mri-jma.go.jp/Dep/cl/cl4/GW/GW.html]
A Coupled Atmosphere-Ocean General Circulation Model has been developed for
simulation of climate change. Global Warming is simulated by the model with a
gradual increase of carbon dioxide by 1% per year compound, starting from the
1985 condition. In this presentation we will show you the results of our
