A numerical model of the atmosphere of Venus

Abstract:

A new general circulation model (GCM) of Venus is being developed at Oxford. Venus presents unique numerical and physical challenges because of its thick atmosphere, slow underlying solid body rotation, and super-rotating atmosphere. Preliminary results from a GCM with simplified physical parameterizations are discussed. The current model uses linearized cooling and friction schemes, and spans five decades of pressure (0-90 km). The model is able to demonstrate significant global super-rotati...
