A General Circulation Model of the atmosphere of the planet Venus is developed using a climate model developed by the UK Meteorological Office. The model is adapted to usea 5×5 horizontal resolution covering the entire horizontal domain with 33 levels extending from the surface to 90km altitude, with a maximum vertical spacing of 3km. Modifications are made to provide a regime appropriate to the atmosphere of Venus. The rotation and orbital periods are changed to the measured values for Venus, and a realistic temperature profile is used to provide a suitable equilibrium temperature…
