This study shows that the regular variation of the bathymetry does not prevent the presence of spurious inertial modes when centered finite element pairs are used and shows that such spurious modes are not present in discontinuous Galerkin discretizations when all variables are approximated in the same descrete space.

The present work extends the TRiSK scheme into a more general framework suitable for grids that have a nonorthogonal dual, such as the equiangular cubed sphere, and shows that this framework fits within the wider framework of mimetic discretizations and discrete exterior calculus.
