Numerical Prediction of the Atmosphere and Ocean

AOS 575

Info tab content
A practical introduction to the numerical approaches that are used to simulate the evolution of the ocean and atmosphere and the coupled Earth system. This course covers the forms of the equations of motion that are most appropriate for numerically studying various atmospheric and oceanic phenomena, and the numerical techniques that are used for their spatial and temporal discretization. The conservation properties of the continuous equations of motion and the numerical approaches for reproducing them are covered, as are the parameterization of unresolved phenomena, and specific considerations for accurate simulation of tracers.
