[asa] Physical Model for Climate

The March 2007 edition of Scientific American page 71 shows a picture of
a "RIVER MODEL at the National Center for Earth Dynamics". The
constructed model is being used to study how sediments move in rivers.
I seem to recall that other such physical models of rivers have been
constructed. At first thought it would seem improbable that any
reasonably sized scale model of a river could result in useful data. I
suspect they also use digital models to aid their understanding of
sediment flows.

Have any physical models been attempted for climate? If so what results?

I understand that the Vehicle Assembly Building at the cape in Florida
has some weather effects.
