Summary
Abstract: The PSU/NCAR mesoscale model is a limited-area, nonhydrostatic or hydrostatic
(Version 2 only), terrain-following sigma-coordinate model designed to simulate
or predict mesoscale and regional-scale atmospheric circulation. It has been
developed at Penn State and NCAR as a community mesoscale model and is
continuously being improved by contributions from users at several ... View entire text
