Dycores & resolution
Atmosphere Model Working Group researchers are developing a new vertical grid for CAM with increased resolution and higher model tops. We are also exploring the benefits of increased horizontal resolutions and are engaged in implementing three potential dynamical cores for CAM.
Testing new vertical grids for CAM with increased resolution and higher model tops. These grids to improve the representation of stratospheric processes and the representation of planetary boundary layer.
Exploring the benefits of increased horizontal resolution both globally and in regionally-refined configurations.
Engaged in implementing and evaluating new dynamical cores for CAM: the spectral element dynamical core; the Model for Prediction across Scales; and the finite-volume cubed sphere dynamical core.
