Reading's Dynamical Modelling Hierarchy
A hierarchy of dynamical models of the global atmosphere has been developed at Reading since the 1970s, all using the spectral transform technique.
Our aim is to create portable versions of all these models: links will be added as models become available. A subset of the models/versions is freely available.
- Barotropic model.
- Shallow water model.
- Baroclinic primitive-equation model (IGCM), including
adiabatic, Newtonian-forcing, and moist parameterization versions.
- Eigenvalue solver for the baroclinic model.
- Linear stationary wave version of the baroclinic model.
- Diagnostics for the baroclinic model versions.
Please note that we are not able to support remote users of the dynamical models.
The codes are maintained using nupdate, a portable program-library editor.
