Conservative Transport Schemes for Spherical Geodesic Grids: High-Order Flux Operators for ODE-Based Time Integration

Abstract

Higher-order finite-volume flux operators for transport algorithms used within Runge–Kutta time integration schemes on irregular Voronoi (hexagonal) meshes are proposed and tested. These operators are generalizations of thirdand fourth-order operators currently used in atmospheric models employing regular, orthogonal rectangular meshes. Two-dimensional… (More)
