FV3: Finite-Volume Cubed-Sphere Dynamical Core

Return to FV3 Applications

An experimental globally uniform ~13 km resolution forecast is made four times a day with the GFS initial conditions from 00Z, 06Z, 12Z, and 18Z.  Additionally, two nested grid forecasts (~3 km resolution over CONUS) are run at 00Z and 12Z.  There are also verification metrics to show how well the model is doing compared to the operational GFS.
