Great job and great website :-).
Two minor comments I want to make about the GFS model. The prediction
model in not purely spectral.
It is GSM with Semi-Lagrangian dynamics (as opposed to CFSv2 or WAM
which are not with Semi-Lagrangian dynamics).
Also, the microphysics in GFS is not truely Zhao and Carr. It is
really Zhao and Carr and Sundqvist , I know because I implemented the
What about CFS v2 of NGAC? they is not listed. As we are moving toward
Unified Forecast System, MEG needs to
look at all time scales.
