Portable University Model of the Atmosphere (PUMA)
Entry ID: DKRZ_PUMA


Summary
Abstract: The Portable University Model of the Atmosphere (PUMA), an atmospheric circulation model consisting of a dynamical core based on the Primitive Equations with simple parametrisations for friction and diabatic heating (Rayleigh friction, Newtonian cooling).
