When setting up global ocean circulation models one faces the problem of including the Arctic Ocean where the traditional spherical coordinate system has a singularity at the pole. In addition, in regional model applications one has to deal with open boundaries where assumptions are made about the normally poorly known boundary conditions. Here an analytical reversible coordinate transformation on a sphere which preserves the orthogonality and the shape of innnitesimal gures is presented… CONTINUE READING
