Geometrically Exact Conservative Remapping ( GECoRe ) : Regular latitude-longitude and cubed-sphere grids

  title={Geometrically Exact Conservative Remapping ( GECoRe ) : Regular latitude-longitude and cubed-sphere grids},
  author={Paul A. Ullrich and Peter H. Lauritzen and Christiane Jablonowski},
Land, ocean and atmospheric models are often implemented on different spherical grids. As a conseqence coupling these model components requires state variables and fluxes to be regridded. For some variables, such as fluxes, it is paramount that the regridding algorithm is conservative (so that energy and water budget balances are maintained) and monotone (to prevent unphysical values). For global applications the cubed-sphere grids are gaining popularity in the atmospheric community whereas… CONTINUE READING
