Abstract

A global general circulation for mean January conditions has been conducted with a nine-level, wavenumber 15 (rhomboidal) spectral model. A semi-implicit algorithm has been used in the time integration, thereby enhancing computational economy. The simulation reproduces many qualitative aspects of the observed January climatology confirming this type of model as an attractive alternative to models using finite-difference formulations.
