Abstract. Monotonicity is an important property of remapping operators for coupled weather and climate models. However, it is often challenging to design highly accurate operators that avoid the generation of new extrema or keep a remapped field between physically prescribed bounds. To that end, this paper explores several traditional and novel approaches for both conservative and non-conservative monotone remapping on the sphere. The accuracy and effectiveness of these algorithms are evaluated in the context of several different real and idealized fields and meshes.

Short summary
Climate models involve several different components, such as the atmosphere, ocean, and land models. Information needs to be exchanged, or remapped, between these models, and devising algorithms for performing this exchange is important for ensuring the accuracy of climate simulations. In this paper, we examine the efficacy of several traditional and novel approaches to remapping on the sphere and demonstrate where our approaches offer improvement.
