FV3 Documentation and References

Disclaimer: We have made every effort to ensure that the information here is as accurate, complete, and as up-to-date as possible. However, due to the very rapid pace of FV3 dynamical core and FV3-powered model development these documents may not always reflect the current state of FV3 capabilities. Often, the code itself is the best description of the current capabilities and the available options, which due to limited space cannot all be described in full detail here. We strongly recommend anyone who wishes to understand FV3 in more detail to read and study the articles linked below. Contact GFDL FV3 Dycore support or GFDL SHiELD/fvGFS model support for assistance and more information.
