A minor modification of the gnomonic cubed-shaped sphere grid that offers advantages in the context of implementing moving hurricane nestsRobert James Purser & Mingjing Tong
The next generation of operational weather and climate prediction models of the National Weather Service is planned to comprise versions of the GFDL FiniteVolume Cubed-Sphere Dynamical Core (FV3). In order to address the need to accommodate storm-tracking movable nests during seasons when tropical storms are active, we will be confronted with cases where the nested grid must pass over the corners of the cubed sphere grid, which are situated at approximately 35° of latitude. Although...
