The article examines a non-flux corrected coupled atmosphere-ocean general circulation model (AOGCM), GENMOM, to evaluate a simulation of modern climate. The model combines the GENESIS version 3 (Global ENvironmental and Ecological Simulation of Interactive Systems) and MOM2 (Modular Ocean Model version 2) general circulation models. It concludes that GENMON captures the observed gradients and spatial distribution of the surface temperature and precipitation, producing a realistic climatology.
