GFDL - Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory

Global Modeling

GFDL’s global models are used to study the causes of annual variability and recent trends in hurricane activity, as well as the predictability of the Atlantic hurricane season. GFDL is currently working on the creation of a higher resolution coupled model with smaller grid cells. This will allow for a more realistic simulation of the climate system, including its response to external forcings such as increasing greenhouse gases.
