The Atmospheric Sciences minor encompasses all aspects of the study of weather and climate. The curriculum includes the study of severe storms and other atmospheric systems that comprise day-to-day weather. Multiple processes that create and change the Earth's climate are also discussed. Atmospheric scientists work on scales that vary from forecasting local weather at the.

The OSU two-level atmospheric general circulation model (OSU-AGCM) has been used to simulate the most probable response of the atmosphere to warm equatorial sea-surface temperatures which are characteristic of the mature phase of El Niño-Southern Oscillation by: 3.
Abstract A modified version of the two-level atmospheric general circulation model has been developed and used in the simulation of January and July global climates Cited by: Abstract A general circulation model using a full-Galerkin method is developed for the simulation of atmospheric climate and variability.
Two variants of the Galerkin method, the spectral-transform method and the ﬁnite-element method, are used in this model for the horizontal and vertical representation, respectively.
The KCM consists of the ECHAM5 AGCM (Roeckner ) with a resolution of T42 (~ ° × °) in the horizontal and 31 vertical levels and the NEMO ocean general circulation model (Madec et al. The horizontal structure of the balances of kinetic energy and total energy simulated by the Oregon State University (OSU) two-level atmospheric general circulation model are studied for January and July on the basis of a three-year simulation with prescribed seasonally-varying solar.

Circulation Cell – each of the vertical circulation systems is called a circulation cell or simply a cell. Hadley Cell – at the surface between the equator and. Atmospheric general circulation models (atmospheric GCMs) are mathematical models based on numerically discretized versions of differential equations that describe the atmospheric physics and dynamics, which are utilized to simulate the global atmospheric circulation.
Atmospheric GCMs have several practical applications including medium-range (typically 3–10 days) weather forecasting, (see. The model dynamics uses the spectral transform method in the horizontal for mass, heat and momentum. A sigma-coordinate system is used with 18 vertical levels.
A diurnal cycle is included, with solar-radiation calculations performed every hours. We describe now a special case: a coupled ocean–atmosphere model in which the atmosphere is represented by a state-of-the-art atmospheric general circulation model (AGCM).
The ocean is represented by a vertical column model (CM) in which the individual levels communicate only by vertical diffusion (see also Alexander and Penland, ). DKRZ ECHAM3 Model Documentation PAGE 1 1. SUMMARY PAGE SHORT DESCRIPTION AND MAIN AUTHORS The ECHAM model has been developed from the ECMWF model (cy November ).
It con-tains several changes, mostly in the parameterization, in order to adjust the model for climate simula-tions. The model used is the Yonsei University Atmospheric General Circulation Model Tropospheric 7-layer (YONU AGCM Tr7), which is essentially based on the dynamic structure and numerics of the Meteorological Research Institute (MRI) model (Tokioka et al.

The coupling problem in the human‐Earth system model has recently emerged as a popular and challenging subject of research. The Earth system model characterize it by a series of mathematical equations, including dynamical equations and parameterization schemes, to construct a mathematical‐physical model that is solved by numerical methods (Wang et al., ).

The OSU two-level atmospheric general circulation model (OSU-AGCM) has been used to simulate the most probable response of the atmosphere to warm equatorial sea. Preliminary results from numerical experiments designed to show the seasonal and geographical distribution of the climatic changes resulting from increased atmospheric CO 2 concentration are presented.
These simulations were made for both doubled and quadrupled CO 2 levels with an improved version of the two‐level OSU atmospheric GCM. In these experiments and in a control run with. Smagorinsky's goal was the one first envisaged by von Neumann and Charney: a general circulation model of the entire three-dimensional global atmosphere built directly from the primitive equations.

Atmospheric general circulation models are at the heart of modern weather forecasting and climate simulation.
This volume is not about their internal workings, but places them in the context of their historical development, their current and near-future development trajectories, and their links to broader science, to other kinds of models and other disciplines.
We investigate the adiabatic and diabatic thermal balance of an atmospheric general circulation model (GCM) under two conditions: the control case, representing today's atmosphere, and a “nuclear winter” scenario in which virtually all sunlight in northern hemisphere mid‐latitudes is absorbed in the upper troposphere by prescribed dense smoke clouds hypothesized to result from the Cited by: The January and July performance of the OSU two-level atmospheric general circulation model, J.

A general circulation model (GCM) is a type of climate model. It employs a mathematical model of the general circulation of a planetary atmosphere or ocean. It uses the Navier–Stokes equations on a rotating sphere with thermodynamic terms for various energy sources (radiation, latent heat).
In scientific modeling model of note is the general circulation model, which is used for simulating human- and non-human-induced climate change.
