Short summary
This paper compares continuous and discontinuous discretizations of the shallow-water equations on the sphere using the flux reconstruction formulation. The discontinuous framework comes at a cost, including a reduced time step size and higher computational expense, but has a number of desirable properties which may make it desirable for future use in atmospheric models.
