Examples of Grids in Climate Models
Cubed Sphere Grid
Used in the HOMME model which is now an optional dynamical core in CAM.
Geodesic grid (Icosahedral-hexagons)
Used in the CSU GCRM
Spherical Centroidal Voronoi Tessellation
Used in the experimental MPAS dynamical core.
Example showing Selective Mesh Refinement Based on Terrain Height
Yin Yang Grid
Used in the Japanese global atmosphere model.
