- Published 2004

A spectral finite-volume (SFV) method is proposed for the numerical solution of the shallow water equations. This is the first phase in the development of a layered (isopycnal) ocean model. Its target applications include, in particular, the simulation of the wind-driven oceanic circulation in geometrically complex basins where layer outcropping and/or isopycnal–bathymetry intersection must be handled explicitly. The present formulation is geometrically flexible and can extend accuracy to… CONTINUE READING
