Hi all,
We will have a session at EGU this year. Please read the information

Call for papers EGU general assembly, Vienna 12 april - 17 april 2015.
Deadline for abstract submission: 7 January 2015
(sorry for multiple postings)

Dear colleagues,

Please consider submitting an abstract to the session :
OS4.4 : Recent algorithmic developments in oceanic models : numerical
schemes and test-cases for model assessment

Description :
Ocean/sea-ice simulation models are widely used in realistic contexts
for climate studies (coupled to the atmosphere)
and for the study of the atmospherically-forced ocean general
circulation, and in more simplified contexts for investigating
isolated processes (e.g. idealized test-cases). Thanks to advances in
computational power, those models are now configured
with increasingly higher horizontal/vertical resolution which requires
continuous rethinking of numerical methods and modeling
assumptions. The objective of this session is to bring together
scientists working on the improvement/development of numerical
  kernels of ocean/sea-ice models (and/or simplified models like
transport or shallow-water equations), including their synergy
with physical parameterizations.

The scope is on the design, testing, and application of new numerical
methods, and the assessment
of methods currently used in existing state-of-the-art models in
realistic or idealized configurations.

This includes three main topics

(i) horizontal/vertical discretization techniques adapted to
fixed/variable structured/non-structured meshes,
and the associated time-integration techniques,
(ii) the adaptation of numerical methods to physical constraints :
monotonic/positive-definite schemes for
passive tracers, the control of numerically-induced mixing, and more
generally physics-dynamics coupling issues,
(iii) the development of semi-idealized test-cases and/or realistic
configurations to exploring the merits of
different numerical approaches and highlighting successes, deficiencies
or biases in model code, approximations or parameterizations.

Conveners :
Florian Lemarié, Mehmet Ilicak, Sergei Danilov, Thierry Penduff, Laurent
