Intro goals of the icon project

Intro: Goals of the ICON project

  • New unified weather forecasting (DWD) and climate model (MPI-M).

  • Mass conservation + discr. continuity eq. = discr. transport eq. with c≡1

  • Quasi uniform horizontal resolution icosahedral grids

  • Local grid refinement in one or more regions triangular cells

  • Global or regional domain

  • Hydrostatic, and non-hydrostatic

  • Ocean GCM using same grid and data structures and numerical operators

Intro goals of the icon project

ICON main line

  • Grid structure based on Thuburn (1997) + optimization option (Heikes and Randall, 1995)

  • 2 conservation variants:

    • Mass and potential vorticity conservative scheme

    • Mass and energy conserving scheme

  • 2 or 3 time level semi-implicit time stepping

ICON side line

  • Grid structure based on great circle grids

  • Uniform third order approximation

  • Easy incorporation of ordinary grid conceps and existing local models


Intro goals of the icon project

GME: 3 time level

ICOSWP: 2 time level


Local zooming option grid generation
Local zooming option: grid generation

> Lat-Lon region > Circular region

> 3 refinement leves > 3 refinement levels

Bilinear grids
Bilinear grids

  • Four points r1,r2,r3,r4 may have any position in space

  • Divide the sides of the rhomboid equally and connect opposite points

  • Bilinear grid theorem: each coordinate line intersects each line of the crossing coordinate line family. The grid is regular in each direction.
