Short summary
Shingle is a new approach to describing and generating spatial mesh discretisations for multi-scale geophysical domains. Its novel use of an extendable, hierarchical formal grammar and natural language basis for geophysical features achieves robust reproduction and enables consistent comparison between models. This is designed to support the increase in complexity as models include a greater range of spatial scales and future-proof simulation set-up.
