Short summary
This paper represents research done on improving our ability to make future predictions about weather and climate, through the use of computer models. Specifically, we are aiming to improve the ability of such simulations to represent fundamental physical processes such as conservation laws. We found that it was possible to obtain a computer model with better conservation properties by using a specific set of mathematical tools (called Hamiltonian methods).
