Unified Model (UM)

Model description

The Met Office Unified Model (UM) vn11.0 is made of the Global Atmosphere 7.1 and JULES Global Land 7.0 described in Walters et al.(2017). The UM dynamical core ENDGame uses a semi-implicit semi-Lagrangian formulation to solve the non-hydrostatic, fully-compressible deep-atmosphere equations of motion (Wood et al., 2014). The model is forced with climatological distributions of aerosol and ozone.
