A global model of the atmosphere is presented governed by the shallow water equations and discretized by a Runge–Kutta discontinuous Galerkin method on an unstructured tri- angular grid. The shallow water equations on the sphere, a two-dimensional surface in R3, are locally represented in terms of spherical triangular coordinates, the appropriate local coordinate mappings on triangles. On every triangular grid element, this leads to a two- dimensional representation of tangential momentum and therefore only two discrete momentum equations.
The Discontinuous Galerkin Coastal Ocean Model (DGCOM) is a two-dimensional shallow water model for simulating coastal ocean processes.The article of record may be found at http://www.doi.org/10.1016/j.jcp.2008.08.019
