    11 The Met Office Unified Model (UM) is the name given to the suite of numerical modelling software developed and used at the Met Office. The UM modelling software is designed so that the model can be run in atmosphere-only (global or limited area), ocean-only or in coupled atmosphere-ocean mode. The Unified Model is used by the [http://www.metoffice.gov.uk UK Met Office] for operational numerical weather prediction and by the [http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/climate-change/resources/hadley Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research] to simulate and predict the Earth's climate.

    15 The UM undergoes significant changes as new scientific enhancements are introduced or new features are added and so the [http://www.metoffice.gov.uk Met Office] release new versions regularly (approx. 3-4 times a year). NCAS-CMS only supports a subset of the versions released.

    4852UM experiments need input files to run and they create output files for diagnosing the experiment. NCAS has created a set of tools and utilities, to supplement the standard ones from the UK Met Office, to support the creation, manipulation and use of these UM files.
