GeoRoundup: the highlights of EGU Journals published during August!

Geoscientific Model Development:

fv3gfs-wrapper: a Python wrapper of the FV3GFS atmospheric model – 25 August 2021

FV3GFS is a weather and climate model written in Fortran. It uses Fortran so that it can run fast, but this makes it hard to add features if you do not (or even if you do) know Fortran. We have written a Python interface to FV3GFS that lets you import the Fortran model as a Python package. We show examples of how this is used to write “model” scripts, which reproduce or build on what the Fortran model can do. You could do this same wrapping for any compiled model, not just FV3GFS.
