FESOM-C v.2: coastal dynamics on hybrid unstructured meshes

Alexey Androsov, Vera Fofonova, Ivan Kuznetsov, Sergey Danilov, Natalja Rakowsky, Sven Harig, Holger Brix, and Karen Helen Wiltshire

Model code and software

FESOM-C v.2 Androsov A., Fofonova V., Kuznetsov I., Danilov S., Harig S., Rakowsky N., Wiltshire K.H.

Short summary
We present a description of a coastal ocean circulation model designed to work on variable-resolution meshes made of triangular and quadrilateral cells. This hybrid mesh functionality allows for higher numerical performance and less dissipative solutions.
