Compatible finite element spaces for geophysical fluid dynamics
Compatible finite elements provide a framework for preserving important structures in equations of geophysical fluid dynamics, and are becoming important in their use for building atmosphere and
Selective decay for the rotating shallow-water equations with a structure-preserving discretization
TLDR
A variational integrator for the shallow water equations that conserves energy, but dissipates potential enstrophy and significantly improves the quality of the approximate solutions, enabling long-term integrations to be carried out.
Numerical simulation of propagation problems on the sphere with a compact scheme
TLDR
Numerical results on a broad series of numerical test cases in climatology are presented, including linear convection problems, the linearized shallow water equations and the non linear shallowWater equations.
Numerical Study of Spurious Inertial Modes in Shallow Water Models for a Variable Bathymetry
TLDR
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.

A Taylor–Galerkin method for convective transport problems
TLDR
The method is successively extended to deal with variable coefficient problems and multi-dimensional situations and the new Taylor–Galerkin schemes are found to exhibit particularly high phase-accuracy with minimal numerical damping.

A Framework for Mimetic Discretization of the Rotating Shallow-Water Equations on Arbitrary Polygonal Grids
TLDR
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.
A mimetic, semi-implicit, forward-in-time, finite volume shallow water model: comparison of hexagonal-icosahedral and cubed-sphere grids
Abstract. A new algorithm is presented for the solution of the shallow water equations on quasi-uniform spherical grids. It combines a mimetic finite volume spatial discretization with a

Energy‐ and enstrophy‐conserving schemes for the shallow‐water equations, based on mimetic finite elements
TLDR
Families of spatial discretizations of the nonlinear rotating shallow‐water equations that conserve both energy and potential enstrophy are presented, based on two‐dimensional mixed finite‐element methods that do not require an orthogonal grid.
