The main focus of this group is the development of high order numerical schemes, particularly the discontinuous Galerkin (DG) method, and application of these methods to the simulation of circulation and transport in coastal and global ocean. We actively investigate numerical and programming techniques to achieve efficient computational  performance for unstructured and adaptive meshes. The results of our research are implemented in our ocean simulator UTBEST3D.
