Idealized test cases (https://earthsystemcog.org/projects/dcmip-2012/test_cases)
1) Baroclinic Wave (DCMIP 4.1, due 6/1/2014): Basic test that does not exercise non-hydro dynamics. Look for effect of ‘special’ points (8 corners of cubes, 12 pentagons on icos grid, poles/polar filters on lat/lon grid).
2) Orographic mountain wave on a reduced-radius sphere without rotation (DCMIP 2.1 with additions, due 7/1/2014). Exercises dry non-hydro dynamics.
3) Not in DCMIP: 3D supercell thunderstorm on a reduced-radius sphere without rotation, with simple Kessler microphysics (due 8/1/2014). Details TBD by end of May. Exercises dry non-hydro dynamics, includes strong convective updrafts, cold pools, etc.
4) Optional (due to late arriving funds):Idealized Tropical Cyclone with Simple Physics(DCMIP 5.1). Exercises moist hydrostatic dynamics, simulation of coherent vortices.
report summarizing all the idealized test results will be distributed to the group by 9/15, delivered to program manager by 10/1/2014.
