|BOLCHEM||The grid is staggered in the horizontal (Arakawa C) and in the vertical (Lorenz).|
|CALMET/CALPUFF||The terrain-following vertical coordinate system
The Lambert conformal grid for the large domain|
|CLM||hybrid pressure(at top of atmos.) and sigma coordinate|
|COSMO-CLM||hybrid pressure(at top of atmos.) and sigma coordinate|
|COSMO-MUSCAT||Vertical hybrid grid for Met and CT:
terrain-following coordinates in lower, horizontal coordinates in upper atmosphere (based either on height or reference pressure).
Uniform with nested sub-domains of raised spatial resolution (for CT only).|
|GEM-AQ||sigma-pressure hybrid vertical coordinate|
|GME||vertical coordinates: hybrid pressure (at top of atmos.) and sigma system.
horizontal coordinates: regular icosahedral-hexagonal grid of 20 equilateral triangles to allow almost uniform discretisation on sphere following Baumgardner (1983)|
|LAMI||hybrid coordinate, horizontal at top of atmosphere and terrain following below (normalized with standard surface pressure)
|LME||hybrid pressure(at top of atmos.)and sigma coordinate |
|LME_MH||identical hybrid pressure/sigma grid as Lokalmodell|
Hybrid Terrain Following Vertical coordinate [SLEVE variation of Gal-Chen, Shaer et al. 2002]
rotated lat/long, polar-stereographic, mercator|
|MM5 (UoA-GR)||Depending on the domain location the user can chose three types of map projections: Lambert conformal, Mercator or Polar Stereographic|
|MM5 (UoA-PT)||Depending on the domain location the user can chose three types of map projections: Lambert conformal, Mercator or Polar Stereographic|
|MM5(GKSS-D)||Other types of map projections can be chosen: Mercartor or polar stereographic.|
|Meso-NH||For the vertical, Gal-Chen-Somerville coordinate.
For the horizontal, different conformal projections (Polar stereographic, Lambert, Mercator)|
|RAMS||The vertical structure of the grid uses the sigma-z terrain-following coordinate system (Gal-Chen and Somerville, 1975; Clark, 1977; Tripoli and Cotton, 1982).|
|SAIMM||the model tranform the cartesian coordinates to terrain-following coordinates|
|UM||Vertical coordinate is hybrid height based - terrain following near surface, flat at top. Gal-Chen and SLEVE can be implemented, but we use a slightly different formulation.
Charney-Philips staggering in vertical to avoid compuation modes and improve balance.|
|WRF/Chem||Depends on choice of dynamical core. WRF allows for different choices...|
