Summary
Abstract: The Portable University Model of the Atmosphere is a circulation model in
FORTRAN-90 developed at the Meteorological Institute of the University of
Hamburg. PUMA originated in a numerical prediction model that was altered to
include only the most relevant processes in the atmosphere. It serves as a
training tool for junior scientists, allowing them to work with a program that
is easier to ... View entire text

Description: You may also want to visit (the) ongoing project to produce a Planet Simulator,
with one of its major components being PUMA-2, an extended version of PUMA that
includes humidity and a boundary layer, among others.
