原始语种摘要: A 4th order advection scheme is applied in a nested eddy-resolving HybridCoordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) of the greater Agulhas Current system for thepurpose of testing advanced numerics as a means for improving the modelsimulation for eventual operational implementation. Model validationtechniques comparing sea surface height variations, sea level skewness andvariogram analyses to satellite altimetry measurements quantify thatgenerally the 4th order advection scheme improves the realism of the modelsimulation. The most striking improvement over the standard 2nd ordermomentum advection scheme, is that the southern Agulhas Current is simulatedas a well-defined meandering current, rather than a train of successiveeddies. A better vertical structure and stronger poleward transports in...
