Abstract

This chapter is devoted to some example applications in adaptive atmospheric (and oceanic) modeling. Of course, there are many more examples of the application of adaptivity in atmospheric modeling. These examples represent projects that were realized by or in collaboration with the author. The first two examples in sections 8.1 and 8.2 are linear tracer transport examples, the third and fourth examples (section 8.3) are extracted from the research project PLASMA in which dynamical cores for a simplified climate model are under development. While these four examples share semi-Lagrangian timediscretization schemes which are well suited for adaptive mesh refinement (see [34]), the fifth example, demonstrating adaptive wave dispersion in section 8.4, employs a finite volume type discretization method for the shallow water equations.
