about

This is an overview of the development of adaptive techniques for atmospheric modeling. Written in an educational style, it functions as a starting point for readers interested in adaptive modeling, in atmospheric sciences and beyond. Coverage includes paradigms of adaptive techniques, such as error estimation and adaptation criteria. Mesh generation methods are presented for triangular/tetrahedral and quadrilateral/hexahedral meshes, with a special section on initial meshes for the sphere.
