A tool for simulating or predicting the behavior of a dynamical system like the atmosphere.

Models can be based on subjective heuristic methods, statistics (
see statistical dynamical model, model output statistics), numerical methods (
see numerical forecasting), simplified physical systems (
see dishpan experiments), analogy (
see analogs), etc. The term is now most commonly applied to numerical models.
