JFV-strat: An idealized General Circulation Model for stratosphere-troposphere coupling

Martin Jucker

Idealized dry General Circulation Model (GCM), forced with Newtonian cooling. This model adds a realistic stratosphere, which is described in analytical form, and allows the adjustment of various parameters for flexibility.
