GFDL @ Princeton - Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory.

Welcome to the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. GFDL's mission is to be a world leader in the production of timely and reliable knowledge and assessments on natural climate variability and anthropogenic changes and in the development of the required earth system models.

GFDL works cooperatively in NOAA to advance its expert assessments of changes in national and global climate through research, improved models, and products

Climate Dynamics and Prediction Group

GFDL's Climate Dynamics and Prediction Group is charged with studying and modeling climate phenomena on seasonal to multi-century time scales. The group's work is highly relevant to key elements of of the NOAA Strategic Vision, especially Mission Goal 2 to "Understand climate variability and change to enhance society's ability to respond". You may learn more about NOAA's goals by viewing the PDF file entitled New Priorities for the 21st Century: NOAA's Strategic Vision.

In addition to examining a wide range of climate time scales, various members of the group have expertise spanning the expansive set of complex and interconnected parts that together constitute the Earth's physical climate system (this includes the atmosphere, ocean, land surface and sea ice). Group members participate in the development, testing, application, and analysis of numerical models of the climate system. Running on supercomputers, these models are the research tools used by group members to both advance our understanding of the Earth's climate system and to generate products relevent to assessment and policy decision support.
