Winter 2004: ATMS 582
Advanced Numerical Modeling of Geophysical Flows
MWF 10:30-11:20, Room ATG 610
Professor Dale Durran

Office hours: Tuesday 2:00-3:00, Thursday 2:00-3:00
Textbook: Durran, D.R., 1999: Numerical Methods for Wave Equations in Geophysical Fluid Dynamics. Springer-Verlag.
The purpose of the course is to obtain a deeper understanding of the
basic numerical techniques that form the foundation for the computer
models commonly used to simulate geophysical flows. This course is
taught every-other year and builds on material covered in ATMS
Considerations in Finite Difference Approximations
Spectral Models on
Solutions to Conservation Laws
Approximating Open (Wave-Permeable) Boundaries
Grading: The grade will be based on four homework assignments, one of which will be identified as a take-home midterm that must be done independently. You may work with other students on the other three homeworks.
