The parallel adaptive model PLASMA has been developed for modeling a barotropic atmosphere. This model adapts the computational grid at every time step according to a physical error indicator. Thus, compared to uniform grid experiments the number of grid points is reduced significantly. At the same time, the error increases only slightly, when comparing… (More)

Keywords: Finite elements Finite volumes Shallow water equations Triangular grid Spherical geometry Surface a b s t r a c t A global model of the atmosphere is presented governed by the shallow water equations and discretized by a Runge–Kutta discontinuous Galerkin method on an unstructured triangular grid. The shallow water equations on the sphere, a… (More)
