Hadley Centre Coupled Model 2 (HadCM2) deployed on Met Office Hadley Centre Computers

Status: Not defined
Publication State:


This computation involved: Hadley Centre Coupled Model 2 (HadCM2) deployed on Met Office Hadley Centre Computers. The HadCM2 experiments performed at the Hadley Centre have used the new
Unified Model (Cullen, 1993). These experiments represent an advance in
the way climate change is modelled by the Hadley Centre and raise new
possibilities for climate scenario construction. The experiments include a
long (multi-century) control simulation, a series of four historically
forced climate change experiments with high and low anthropogenic forcing
scenarios with and without the effects of sulphate aerosols, and for each
of these four climate change experiments a set of four ensembles with
identical forcing but different initial model conditions.

More Information (under review)

Hadley Centre aims: 1. understand physical, chemical and biological processes within the climate system and develop computer models of the climate which represent them; 2. use computer models to simulate the differences between global and regional climates; the changes seen over the last 100 years, and to predict changes over the next 100 years; 3. monitor global and national climate variability and change; 4. attribute recent changes in climate to specific factors. The Hadley Centre undertakes studies of the global climate using similar, though more extensive, models of the atmospheres, as are used for the prediction of weather conditions.
