thumbnail of model output mapGMI- The goal of the Global Modeling Initiative (GMI) is to develop and maintain a state-of-the-art modular 3-D chemistry and transport model (CTM) that can be used for assessment of the impact of various natural and anthropogenic perturbations on atmospheric composition and chemistry, including, but not exclusively, the effect of aircraft. The GMI model also serves as a testbed for model improvements. atmospheric model developed by the Global Modeling and Assimitation Office.

thumbnail from NU-WRFNU-WRF - the NASA-Unified Weather Research and Forecasting (NU-WRF) model is an observation-driven regional earth system modeling and assimilation system at satellite-resolvable scale.
thumbnail from GEOS-CCMGEOS-CCM - the Goddard chemistry climate model, GEOS-CCM, is based on the NASA/GMAO general circulation model integrated with various chemical packages. It includes an interactive chemistry component, allowing for feedbacks between chemical composition and the circulation.
thumbnail from GEOS-CTMGEOS-CTM - The GEOS Chemistry-Transport Model (CTM) configuration incorporates the ability to compute chemical reactions in a predictive framework, using specified meteorological conditions (winds, temperatures, moisture, cloud distributions and in-cloud transport) that are pre-computed. This configuration enables the impacts of chemical processes on constituent distributions to be examined without allowing for feedbacks on the circulation.
thumbnail from GEOS-ChemGEOS-Chem - The GEOS–Chem model is a global 3-D model of atmospheric composition driven by assimilated meteorological observations from the Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS) of the NASA Global Modeling and Assimilation Office. It is applied by research groups around the world to a wide range of atmospheric composition problems, including future climates and planetary atmospheres using general circulation model meteorology to drive the model.
