Short summary
We have discussed the discretizations of the three-dimensional nonhydrostatic linearized anelastic equations on the A, B, C, CD, (DC), D, E and Z horizontal grids, and on the L and CP vertical grids, with an emphasis on midlatitude inertia–gravity waves. The Z and C grids show the most accurate dispersion among the seven horizontal grids. The inertia–gravity mode solutions with the D and CD grids are almost identical. The A, B and E grids suffer from the multiple (or non-unique) physical modes.
