GFDI Facilities Facilities are situated in the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute, located on the ground floor of the Keen Building, Suite 018, on FSU's main campus. Its primary function is to support and foster those theoretical, experimental, numerical, and observational studies of natural environmental fluid flows that transcend traditional departmental disciplines. These facilities include an open laboratory for hydrodynamics experiments; computing facilities; a colloquium and reading room; a fully equipped machine shop; and faculty, staff, and student offices.
