GlobAGiM

GlobAGim (Globales Atmosphaerisches Gitterpunktsmodell) comprises a multilevel primitive equation model for the global atmosphere. It has been developed from scratch by the students in the course "Einführung in die praktische Programmierung von globalen Wettervorhersagemodellen". The mathematical formulation of GlobAGim is described systematically in the lecture notes for this course. The model can be applied for ideal simulations of extratropical weather systems and weather forecast experiments.
