From General Circulation Modeling to Climate Modeling
Warren M. Washington, NCAR, Boulder, CO
A brief historical review will be presented of the development of early general circulation models that later became part of climate models. The contributions of Suski Manabe along with his colleagues will be emphasized. Also, the history of one of his favorite phases "garbage in garbage out." It should be noted that this phase is a famous computer axiom.
