What is NICAM?

NICAM is a Nonhydrostatic ICosahedral Atmospheric Model (NICAM), used as a Global Cloud Resolving Model (GCRM).
A 3.5km-mesh global simulation is already performed using the Earth Simulator.

NICAM is first developed by H.Tomita (RIKEN/AICS) and M.Satoh(AORI), and is now under development in cooperation with AORI and JAMSTEC and RIKEN/AICS.

Review articles on NICAM is Tomita and Satoh (2004), Satoh et al. (2008), Satoh et al.(2014).
Paper on NICAM are summarized in http://www.nicam.jp/hiki/?NICAM+Papers.


NICAM is also used as a low-resolution Atmospheric General Circulation Model (AGCM), and as a regional cloud resolving model based on stretched grids (Stretch-NICAM).

Please contact Masaki Satoh if you are interested in NICAM.
