Short summary
Unstructured meshes offer flexibility but are perceived as slow. Some applications, including atmosphere or ocean simulations, admit an extruded mesh: the horizontal mesh may be unstructured, but the vertical dimension can be traversed in a structured way. By extending the Firedrake automated simulation framework to this case, we show that an extruded mesh can be traversed as fast as a structured mesh. This paves the way for highly efficient unstructured mesh models of the ocean and atmosphere.
