    Numerical models (General Circulation Models or GCMs), representing physical processes in the atmosphere, ocean, cryosphere and land surface, are the most advanced tools currently available for simulating the response of the global climate system to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations. Global Physical Climatology, Second Edition, provides an introduction to the science of climate and climate change that spans the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface, and the interactions among them.. It begins with a basic introduction to the climate system, and then introduces the physics of the climate system, including the principles and processes that determine the structure and climate.

    A Global Climate Model (GCM), also known as a general circulation model, is a mathematical model of the circulation of the Earth's atmosphere and ocean. Atmospheric and oceanic GCMs are key components of global climate models along with sea ice and land-surface components. An hydrological transport model is a mathematical model used to simulate the flow of rivers, streams, groundwater movement or drainage front displacement, and calculate water quality parameters. These models generally came into use in the s and s when demand for numerical forecasting of water quality and drainage was driven by environmental legislation, and at a similar time widespread.

General Circulation Model General Circulation Models (GCM) is the representation of physical processes in the atmosphere, ocean, and land surface, and currently available for simulating the response of global climate system to increasing greenhouse gas concentrations (Carter et al., ).

From: Extreme Hydrology and Climate Variability, Aspects of the land-surface and boundary-layer treatments in some 20 or so atmospheric general circulation models (GCMS) are summarized. In only a small fraction of these have significant sensitivity studies been carried out and published.

Predominantly, the sensitivity studies focus upon the parameterization of land-surface processes and specification of land-surface properties-the most.

A new strategy for modeling the land surface component of the climate system is described. The strategy is motivated by an arguable deficiency in most state‐of‐the‐art land surface models, namely, the disproportionately higher emphasis given to the formulation of one‐dimensional, vertical physics relative to the treatment of horizontal heterogeneity in surface properties, particularly Cited by: Bryant J.

A general circulation model is a type of climate model. It employs a mathematical model of the general circulation of a planetary atmosphere or ocean. It uses the Navier–Stokes equations on a rotating sphere with thermodynamic terms for various energy sources.

These equations are the basis for computer programs used to simulate the Earth's atmosphere or oceans. Atmospheric and oceanic GCMs are key components along with sea ice and land-surface components. Climate is governed by the general circulation of the atmosphere — the global pattern of air movements, with its semi-tropical trade winds, its air masses rising in the tropics to descend farther north, its cyclonic storms that carry energy and moisture through middle latitudes, and so forth.

CO 2 uptake during plant photosynthesis and CO 2 loss during plant and microbial respiration were added to a land surface process model to simulate the diurnal and annual cycles of biosphere‐atmosphere CO 2 exchange. The model was coupled to a modified version of the National Center for Atmospheric Research Community Climate Model version 2, and the coupled model was Cited by:.

Surface energy balance and hydrology over land. The treatment of surface processes over land has been modified extensively in AGCM2. A single soil-layer is used as in The First Generation Atmospheric General Circulation Model, but the properties of this layer now vary with location.

The representation of hydrological land surface processes has, so far, been treated inadequately in global models of the atmospheric general circulation (GCMs). In particular the lateral waterflows from the continents into the ocean have been described unsatisfactorily.

The aim of this study is to develop a model for the lateral waterflow on the global scale which describes the translation and Cited by: Global Climate Models and Their Limitations 11 of soil moisture, the influence of land surface on climate is on seasonal and interannual time-scales.

Surface ice sheets also have an important role in the evolution of the climate system. Their formation and expansion represent a lowering of the total energy.
