I am wondering the major differences been an Atmospheric model and a Climate model? For example, Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS) versus Regional Climate Modeling System (RegCM). I recently use the both for 20 years climate simulations, but didn't find why one is called atmospheric and one is climate?

  • $\begingroup$ @gansub.. none of your link answers my question. Weather model is different and quite understandable. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ An atmospheric model is nothing but a weather model. You can use the weather model to simulate climate such as CWRF but a RCM is used for climate modeling. If my links do not help please wait for somebody else to answer your question. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @gansub :: Thank you . If all weather models are atmospheric models and visa versa, then your links answer my questions... $\endgroup$
