AV= auxiliary variable
DV= dependent variable
FFV= full-field variable
MNV= monitor variable
PWV= patchwise variable
SAV= special auxiliary variable
SWV= slab-wise variable
WSV= whole-field-solver variable
WV= x-wise variable
YWV= y-wise variable
ZWV= z-wise variable
Examples of GROUND coding may be found in the user-accessible coding of PHOENICS. Inspection of some of these examples may be helpful at the present juncture.

Otherwise (or thereafter) the following passage should be read as an introduction to the next-relevant PHENC entry, namely F-ARRAY of Earth.
