Short summary
In this work the use of adaptive Cartesian meshes in atmospheric single-column models is explored. Results are presented for test scenarios based on the first two GEWEX ABL Study (GABLS) inter-comparison studies. Consistent with existing literature, we conclude that the method is promising and future atmospheric modelling efforts would warrant the extension of the present techniques to a three-dimensional grid.
