zonally averaged models

Climate models (typically statistical–dynamical or energy balance models) in which the longitudinal dimension has been eliminated through latitudinal averaging, and the meridional transport (of energy, for example) by large-scale and synoptic-scale eddies is not explicitly resolved but is instead determined parametrically.
