1. Introduction Climate model simulations participating in the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project phase 3 (CMIP3) in support of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fifth Assessment Report (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report ( Solomon et al. 2007 ) were restricted in two important ways by the computer power then available. First, the models specified zonally symmetric stratospheric ozone. As a result, the model dynamics (in particular planetary waves) are unrelated to the ozone field

limiting the influence of the orographic wave drag parameterization to below 30 hPa. The scheme yields a reasonable semiannual oscillation. However, the vertical resolution employed here is not sufficiently fine to enable simulation of the quasi-biennial oscillation ( Giorgetta et al. 2006 ). c. Turbulence and planetary boundary layer Turbulence and planetary boundary layers (PBLs) in AM3 are treated as in AM2. Lock et al. (2000) is used for convective PBLs and stratocumulus layers. Louis (1979) is
