January and July Simulation Experiments With the 2.5 Latitude-longitude Version of the NCAR General Circulation Model

This technical note documents the capability of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), 2.5�� latitude-longitude, second-generation, 6-layer General Circulation Model (GCM) to simulate a typical January or July. This version is a modification of an NCAR model for which results of similar simulations were published earlier. The new diagnostics are storm tracks for both mountain and no-mountain experiments, soil moisture, snow cover, and energy balance at the earth's surface and model top. To clarify the cause of a deficiency in the temperature distribution, we include results of additional experiments. For the reader's convenience in examining the figures along with the text, this technical note is divided into Volume l Text and Volume 2 Figures.
