dc.description.abstractA finite element application to the barotropic primitive equations is presented including theoretical development and the model used. Analytic initial data is generated in order to verify as well as possible the accuracy of the model. A comparison of the model with similar finite difference schemes shows that this finite element method exhibits better phase speed propagation than comparable second and fourth order finite differencing and is competitive in the size of the allowable time step.
