Dynamics Research develops and maintains the dynamical core of the Met Office's Unified Model and undertakes research on numerical techniques for use in future cores.
Our key aims are to maintain, improve and develop current, and new, dynamical cores for the Met Office Unified Model.
The partial differential equations governing atmospheric flow are the subject of this topic, the emphasis being on various degrees of consistent approximation and simplification of these continuous nonlinear equations.
The tendencies due to the physical parametrization schemes need to be coupled to those of the dynamical core, while ensuring accuracy, overall model stability and computational efficiency.
