Abstract

Scientists working with atmospheric general circulation models (AGCMs) can now access documentation summarizing the numerics and physics of most of these models on the World Wide Web (WWW) at address http://www-pcmdi.llnl.gov/phillips/modldoc/amip/amip.html. The electronic documentation is unprecedented in both its scope and depth. Some 35 features of 30 atmospheric models are summarized, allowing scientists to investigate the relationship between current AGCMs' simulations and the various choices of algorithms these models represent. Hypertext links are used to expedite the retrieval of information on specific models or features.
