Army Modeling and Simulation Standards for Dynamic Atmospheric Environments: CLIMAT, COMBIC, XSCALE

Report No. ARL-TR-1834
Authors: Shirkey, Richard C.
Date/Pages: July 1999; 55 pages
Abstract: In concert with DoD objectives, the Army Modeling and Simulation Office (AMSO) has introduced a process to develop standards in 19 separate categories relevant to Army Modeling and Simulation. This process is explained and the AMSO standards category of Dynamic Atmospheric Environments is defined and examined. Approved models in this category are presented in a fashion that allows the potential user to ascertain whether they are applicable for a given simulation. These models currently consist of the climatology model (CLIMAT), the smoke and dust transport and diffusion model Combined Obscuration Methodology for Battlefield Induced Contaminants (COMBIC), and the natural aerosol transmission model Scaled Extinction model (XSCALE).
