(Resolving Orbital and Climate Keys of Earth and Extraterrestrial Environments with Dynamics)
(Rocky-planet-oriented general circulation model)

ROCKE-3D (for Resolving Orbital and Climate Keys of Earth and Extraterrestrial Environments with Dynamics) is a general circulation model oriented toward modeling the climate of rocky planets, applicable to extra-solar planets and solar system planets and moons. It is a three dimensional model. It is a NASA project, developed by Goddard Space Flight Center and is an offshoot of the Earth-oriented GCM, GISS GCM ModelE, and includes or accommodates modeling of factors that influence Earth's climate.
