Abstract. We present a "nudged" version of the Met Office general
circulation model, the Unified Model.
We constrain this global climate model using ERA-40 reanalysis
data with the aim of reproducing the observed "weather" over a year from September 1999.
Quantitative assessments are made of its performance,
focussing on dynamical aspects of nudging and demonstrating
that the "weather" is well simulated.
