Lecture Notes in Computational Science and Engineering

Numerical Techniques for Global Atmospheric Models

Editors: Lauritzen, P.H., Jablonowski, C., Taylor, M.A., Nair, R.D. (Eds.)

  • Surveys the horizontal, vertical and temporal discretization techniques for today's and future-generation global atmospheric models.
  • Gives practical guidance in designing dynamical cores: including formulation of the equations, numerical conservation properties, shape-preserving transport, unstructured computational grids and parallel computing aspects.
  • Reviews in depth the many poorly documented dissipation and filtering mechanisms in operational weather prediction and climate models.

About this book

This book surveys recent developments in numerical techniques for global atmospheric models. It is based upon a collection of lectures prepared by leading experts in the field. The chapters reveal the multitude of steps that determine the global atmospheric model design. They encompass the choice of the equation set, computational grids on the sphere, horizontal and vertical discretizations, time integration methods, filtering and diffusion mechanisms, conservation properties, tracer transport, and considerations for designing models for massively parallel computers. A reader interested in applied numerical methods but also the many facets of atmospheric modeling should find this book of particular relevance.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This monograph, edited by Peter Lauritzen, Christiane Jablonowski, Mark Taylor and Ramachandran Nair, brings together current developments in the field of global atmospheric modeling with modern computational techniques that are likely to determine fruitful directions for further advanced study and research. … This new edited research monograph contains references to a large number of books, monographs and research papers which will stimulate further study and research in global atmospheric models and modern computational methods. ” (L. Debnath, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2012 m)
