A modified atmospheric non-hydrostatic model on low aspect ratio grids : part II
MetadataShow full item record
Sun et al. (2012) proposed a modified non-hydrostatic model (MNH), in which the left-hand side of the continuity equation is multiplied by a parameter δ(4 ≤ δ≤16 in the article) to suppress high-frequency acoustic waves. They showed that the MNH allows a longer time step than the original non-hydrostatic model (NH). The MNH is also more accurate and efficient than the horizontal explicit and vertical implicit scheme (HEVI) when the aspect ratio (Δx/Δz) is small. In addition to multiplying a parameter δ, here we propose to add a smoothing on the right-hand side of the continuity equation in the MNH to damp shortest sound waves. Linear stability analysis and non-linear model simulations show that the MNH with smoothing (henceforth abbreviated as MNHS) can use twice the time interval of the MNH while maintaining the same accuracy. The MNHS is also more accurate and efficient than HEVI when the aspect ratio is small.

Sun, Wen-Yih; Sun, Oliver M. T.; Tsuboki, Kazuhisa (International Meteorological Institute, 2012-04-17)It is popular to use a horizontal explicit and a vertical implicit (HE-VI) scheme in the compressible nonhydrostatic (NH) model. However, when the aspect ratio becomes small, a small time-interval is required in HE-VI, ...
Frequency-dependent two-sex models : a new approach to sex ratio evolution with multiple maternal conditions Shyu, Esther; Caswell, Hal (John Wiley & Sons, 2016-09-07)Mothers that experience different individual or environmental conditions may produce different proportions of male to female offspring. The Trivers-Willard hypothesis, for instance, suggests that mothers with different ...
Acoustic scattering from sand dollars (Dendraster excentricus) : modeling as high aspect ratio oblate objects and comparison to experiment Dietzen, Gregory C. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, 2008-09)Benthic shells can contribute greatly to the scattering variability of the ocean bottom, particularly at low grazing angles. Among the effects of shell aggregates are increased scattering strength and potential subcritical ...
