Welcome to the FV3GFS VLab Community!



2018 Training

GFDL and EMC held a FV3 training targeted towards technical developers; the goal of this initial training was to focus on the detailed description of the FV3GFS forecast model (dynamic core, solver, and physics) and various utilities, and testing of the FV3GFS for global atmospheric applications. A demo on how to run FV3GFS using the FV3GFS workflow including post processing and verification was also part of the training. The training was conducted at NCWCP/NCEP in College Park, Maryland from Tuesday June 12 through Thursday June 14, 2018.
