Moving vortices with adaptive refinement (4.1 MB)


The Moving Vortices Test Case is defined in the article by Nair and Jablonowski,  Monthly Weather Review, v. 136, 2008.

This computation used 2 refinement criteria: one to resolve the interface where the tracer is close to 1, and one to resolve steep gradients in the tracer.  The error in this computation is as good as a uniform mesh with N = 20480 panels.
