Reviewing a roadmap for adaptive atmospheric modeling
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
In my 2006 monograph on Adaptive Atmospheric Modeling the last section titled "Roadmap for the next five years" outlines several aspects of numerical methods for multi-scale phenomena in the atmosphere. Now, more than five years later, it is time to review a few of the issues raised in 2006. As one would expect, the grand solution to adaptive multi-scale modeling has not been found so far, and some solutions have generated new questions. But a lot has been achieved since 2006 and it is interesting to see, which directions have been taken. I will cover the aspects of consistent numerical methods, refinement criteria and strategies, applications and efficiency of adaptive methods in atmosphere and ocean applications.
