Short summary
This work introduces a collection of advances in the field of numerical simulation of the atmosphere using mixed finite element methods. We emphasize vertical motions in the atmosphere and apply state-of-the-art mathematics and programming paradigms to solve the differential equations that govern air flow cast in a coordinate-free formulation. The simulations show accurate flow features over a wide range of spatial scales including several important phenomena.
