Annual Seminar on Developments in Numerical Methods for Atmospheric and Ocean Modelling

The seminar on Developments in Numerical Methods for Atmospheric and Ocean Modelling was held from 6 to 10 September 2004.

Description

The Seminar presented a pedagogical review of recent developments in numerical methods for atmospheric and ocean modelling. Topics covered included the choice of the basic dynamical equations and coordinate systems for different applications, and the virtues of various horizontal and vertical discretizations in the context of a range of resolutions. The choice of time-integration schemes and questions of accuracy and conservation were addressed as well as issues of efficiency on different computer architectures.

The balance between accuracy and discretization is an important issue in ocean wave modelling. As the power of computers becomes greater and greater, the resolution of even global models is reaching the point where non-hydrostatic effects have to be taken into account and efficient algorithms to avoid instabilities in fast-travelling waves become of crucial importance.
