Summary
Abstract: The GFDL R30 climate model is a coupled atmosphere-ocean
general circulation model (AOGCM). Its four major components
are an atmospheric spectral GCM, and ocean GCM, and
relatively simple models of sea ice and land surface processes.
The name "R30" is derived from the resolution of the
atmospheric spectral model (rhomboidal truncation at wave
number 30).
