Summary
Abstract: One of several versions of global spectral models in use at the
Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory, ithis version of the GFDL model
is applied primarily to climate studies. In its treatment of
atmospheric dynamics, the model is similar to the GFDL Dynamical
Extended-Range Forecasting (DERF) model (cf. Gordon and Stern 1982 and
Miyakoda and Sirutis 1986 ), but it displays a number of differences
in numerical features (e.g., use of rhomboidal rather than triangular
spectral truncation and a somewhat higher vertical resolution), as
well as in some model parameterizations (e.g., radiation, vertical
diffusion, land surface submodel, sea ice submodel).

For the PMIP, GFDL consists of runs 21 and 6.
