Numerical models are a key tool for climate scientists in understanding the past, present and future climate change arising from natural, unforced variability or in response to changes, according to Dr. Qing Bao, Research Fellow at the State Key Laboratory of Numerical Modeling for Atmospheric Sciences and Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (LASG), Institute of Atmospheric Physics (IAP), Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), and the corresponding author of a recently published study.

"Climate change, such as global warming, substantially influence human society in all aspects, and climate prediction is a constant hot topic in the climate science community," says Dr. Bao. "The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP), organized under the auspices of the World Climate Research Programme's Working Group on Coupled Modelling, uses state-of-the-art climate models to provide a physical evidence base for policymakers, such as the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change)".

Dr. Bao and his model team—a group of researchers from LASG/IAP—are in charge of the development of the atmospheric model of CAS' FGOALS-f3-L climate model. They recently completed the AMIP (Atmospheric Model Intercomparison Project) simulations in the sixth phase of CMIP and published their datasets of the ESGF (Earth System Grid Federation) nodes as a data description paper in Advances in Atmospheric Sciences.

The Finite-volume Atmospheric Model (FAMIL) in FGOALS-f3-L, which is the new-generation AGCM (atmospheric general circulation model) of the Spectral Atmosphere Model of LASG (SAMIL), has been...
