The LMDZ (Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique Zoom) model is an IPCC-class (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) atmospheric general circulation model benefitting, as the atmospheric component of the state-of-the-art IPSL (Institut Pierre-Simon Laplace) Earth system model, from the latest physical and dynamical refinements. I use a mid-resolution version of the model, which provides a resolution of 1.9° x 3.75° with 39 vertical levels (21 in the troposphere) on a rectangular grid.
