  abstract = {{The construction of a new database of statistics on the climate and
environment of the Martian atmosphere is currently under way, with the
support of the European Space Agency. The primary objectives of this
database are to provide information for mission design specialists on
the mean state and variability of the Martian environment in
unprecedented detail, through the execution of a set of carefully
validated simulations of the Martian atmospheric circulation using
comprehensive numerical general circulation models. The formulation of
the models used are outlined herein, noting especially new improvements
in various schemes to parametrize important physical processes, and the
scope of the database to be constructed is described. A novel approach
towards the representation of large-scale variability in the output of
the database using empirical eigenfunctions derived from statistical
analyses of the numerical simulations, is also discussed. It is hoped
that the resulting database will be of value for both scientific and
engineering studies of Mars' atmosphere and near-surface environment.
