Improved general circulation models of the Martian atmosphere from the surface to above 80 km
We describe a set of two “new generation” general circulation models of the Martian atmosphere derived from the models we originally developed in the early 1990s. The two new models share the sameExpand
The LMDZ4 general circulation model: climate performance and sensitivity to parametrized physics with emphasis on tropical convection
The LMDZ4 general circulation model is the atmospheric component of the IPSL–CM4 coupled model which has been used to perform climate change simulations for the 4th IPCC assessment report. The mainExpand
Climate change projections using the IPSL-CM5 Earth System Model: from CMIP3 to CMIP5
We present the global general circulation model IPSL-CM5 developed to study the long-term response of the climate system to natural and anthropogenic forcings as part of the 5th Phase of the CoupledExpand
Tropical Intraseasonal Variability in 14 IPCC AR4 Climate Models. Part I: Convective Signals
Abstract This study evaluates the tropical intraseasonal variability, especially the fidelity of Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO) simulations, in 14 coupled general circulation models (GCMs)Expand
A climate database for Mars
A database of statistics which describe the climate and surface environment of Mars has been constructed directly on the basis of output from multiannual integrations of two general circulationExpand
Numerical simulation of the general circulation of the atmosphere of Titan.
Diagnostics of the simulated atmospheric circulation underlying the importance of the seasonal cycle and a tentative explanation for the creation and maintenance of the atmospheric superrotation based on a careful angular momentum budget are presented. Expand
The Present and Future of the West African Monsoon: A Process-Oriented Assessment of CMIP5 Simulations along the AMMA Transect
AbstractThe present assessment of the West African monsoon in the models of the Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) phase 5 (CMIP5) indicates little evolution since the third phase of CMIPExpand
Interactive chemistry in the Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique general circulation model: Description and background tropospheric chemistry evaluation: INTERACTIVE CHEMISTRY IN LMDZ
[1] We provide a description and evaluation of LMDz-INCA, which couples the Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique general circulation model (LMDz) and the Interaction with Chemistry and AerosolsExpand
The Latitudinal Distribution of Clouds on Titan
A general circulation model of Titan is developed that identifies and explains the formation of several types of ethane and methane clouds, including south polar clouds and sporadic clouds in temperate regions and especially at 40° in the summer hemisphere. Expand
Impact of the LMDZ atmospheric grid configuration on the climate and sensitivity of the IPSL-CM5A coupled model
The IPSL-CM5A climate model was used to perform a large number of control, historical and climate change simulations in the frame of CMIP5. The refined horizontal and vertical grid of the atmosphericExpand
