MCore: Towards a Multi-Resolution Non-Hydrostatic Finite-Volume Dynamical Core
Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute
This talk will focus on recent efforts towards developing a true multi-resolution framework for modeling regional climate in a global domain. In particular, I will present ongoing work on the high-order non-hydrostatic finite-volume MCore atmospheric general circulation model, which has been designed for massively parallel systems and with a focus on using mesh refinement to seamlessly tie together regional and global scales. Further, efforts to develop test cases of intermediate complexity, which include moisture and simplified physics parameterizations, have been undertaken and simulated within MCore. These efforts will be presented, along with a look at some upcoming approaches to numerical modeling using finite-volume methods on the sphere.
