Paper Abstract

The study of the Earth's climate system is now an important central focus for the new discipline of Earth Science. Simulation models, particularly General Circulation Models (GCMs), of the atmosphere are essential tools for the global change research effort as they allow the detailed investigation of the mechanisms involved and offer some promise for predicting the Earth systems' response to perturbation.
