Abstract:The Planet Simulator is a Model of Intermediate Complexity (MIC), suitable for climate and paleo-climate simulations and time scales up to ten thousand years or more. It runs on a wide range of hardware and operating systems including massive parallel cluster and workstations with UNIX, Solaris, Linux, MAC OS or any other UNIX style operating system. The priorities in development are set to speed, easy handling and portability. Its modular structure allows a problem dependent configuration. A graphical Model Starter (MoSt) can be used to select a model configuration from the repository, set its parameters, compile and run the model. The model can be run either in production mode for maximum performance or in interactive mode using a Graphical User Interface (GUI). This GUI is both a real time visualization interface for all model variables and a tool for tuning and experimenting with the model.
