Short summary
WAVETRISK-1.0 is a new adaptive dynamical core for global climate modelling. It uses multiscale adaptive wavelet methods to adjust the grid resolution of the model at each time to guarantee error and make optimal use of computational resources. This technique has the potential to make climate simulations more accurate and allow much higher local resolutions. This "zoom" capability could also be used to focus on significant phenomena (such as hurricanes) or particular regions of the Earth.
