Atmosphere-ocean modeling exploiting fluid isomorphisms

Atmosphere-ocean modeling exploiting fluid isomorphisms.

(Marshall, J and Adcroft, A and Campin, JM and Hill, C and White, A), MONTHLY WEATHER REVIEW, vol. 132, no. 12, pp. pages, 2004.


Mathematical isomorphisms between the hydrostatic equations that govern the evolution of a compressible atmosphere and an incompressible ocean are described and exploited to guide the design of a hydrodynamical kernel for simulation of either fluid.
