The 2007 Workshop on the Solution of Partial Differential Equations on the Sphere was held from 24-27 September 2007 and hosted by the Met Office, Exeter, UK.
A fundamental issue in climate and weather modelling is the dependence of errors in general circulation models on their basic dynamical cores. To advance the state-of-the-art for numerical weather prediction and climate simulation, this organisation encourages research on numerical algorithms and solution methods for partial differential equations (PDEs) posed in a spherical geometry. We also foster the development of tests and diagnostics for atmospheric and ocean model dynamical cores.
The development of new methods in spherical geometry and how these eliminate shortcomings of current methods, application to the shallow water equations and to complete baroclinic models are the current focus.
Speaker presentations of the event are available in PDF format.
