Short summary
The design of the icosahedral atmospheric dynamical core DYNAMICO is presented. The key contribution is to combine a strict separatation of kinematics from dynamics to a Hamiltonian formulation of the equations of motion in a non-Eulerian vertical coordinate to achieve energetic consistency. This approach allows for a unified treatment of various equations of motion: multi-layer shallow-water equations and hydrostatic primitive equations.
