Numerical Methods in Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography, 7.5 credits

About the course

The course deals with numerical methods for solving the hydrodynamic equations.

The course includes:

• finite differences in time and space of the hydrodynamic equations

• analysis of finite differential methods limitations

• semi-implicit and semi-Lagrangian schemata

• iterative methods for solving Laplace and Poissonekvationerna

• alternating grid for shallow water equations in two dimensions

• nonlinear advektionstermer

• spectral coordinates for global atmospheric circulation models
