What does "General Circulation Models" mean?

Hydrodynamic models of the atmosphere on a grid or
spectral resolution that determine the surface
pressure and the vertical distributions of
velocity, temperature, density, and water vapor as
functions of time from the mass conservation and
hydrostatic laws, the first law of thermodynamics,
Newton's second law of motion, the equation of
state, and the conservation law for water vapor.
Abbreviated as GCM. Atmospheric general
circulation models are abbreviated AGCM, while
oceanic general circulation models are abbreviated
OGCM.
