Unified Model

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 UK Met Office for operational numerical weather prediction and by the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research to simulate and predict the Earth's climate.

UM versions

The UM undergoes significant changes as new scientific enhancements are introduced or new features are added and so the Met Office release new versions regularly (approx. 3-4 times a year). NCAS-CMS only supports a subset of the versions released. A list of the supported UM versions and platforms can be found on the UM Trac.

All documentation relating to each UM version, including the UM User Guides, is available in the Met Office Documentation part of this website. A password is required in order to access the majority of the documentation.
