CCM3 T170 Cloud and Precipitation Simulation
Entry ID:

Abstract: The NCAR Community Climate Model (CCM3) is a state of the art atmospheric
general circulation model designed for climate research on high-speed
supercomputers and select upper-end workstations. This cloud and precipitation
simulation covers an entire year.Introduction Today's generation of climate
models are typically run at T42 resolution, which translates to about a 3
