FAMOUS is a fast Earth-system model, built around general circulation models of the atmosphere and ocean (AOGCM). FAMOUS originated as a low-resolution version of the widely used HadCM3 AOGCM, intended for projects where long periods of simulated time were needed, because it runs about ten times faster than HadCM3 - up to 250 simulated years per day. New options for a closed carbon cycle, interactive vegetation and icesheets and other developments have made it into an independent Earth-system model.
