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)
During ice-free periods, the Northern Sea Route (NSR) could be an attractive shipping route. The decline in Arctic sea-ice extent, however, could be associated with an increase in the frequency of the causes of severe weather phenomena, and high wind-driven waves and the advection of sea ice could make ship navigation along the NSR difficult. Accurate(More)
The Arctic atmospheric boundary layer (AABL) in the central Arctic was characterized by dropsonde, lidar, ice thickness and airborne in situ measurements during 321 the international Polar Airborne Measurements and Arctic Regional Climate Model Simulation Project (PAMARCMiP) in April 2009. We discuss AABL observations in the lowermost 500 m above (A) open(More)
