The climate of southern Africa is fundamentally affected by mesoscale circulation patterns that are not adequately simulated by global atmospheric general circulation models (AGCMs). The technique of nested climate modelling (NCM) utilises high-resolution limited area models (LAMs) to obtain climate simulations of the mesoscale from essentially synoptical scale AGCM results.
