4th Workshop on the Use of Isentropic & other Quasi-Lagrangian Vertical Coordinates in Atmosphere & Ocean Modeling

October 7-9, 2008
Considerable development & testing of quasi-Lagrangian vertical coordinates has occurred since the last hybrid-Θ modeling work shop 4 years ago. This work, in both the atmosphere & ocean, has demonstrated further the potential for isentropic & other quasi-Lagrangian vertical coordinates to improve simulations & forecasts of geophysical fluid flows. This workshop will include both invited & contributed papers on the latest progress in this rapidly developing field.
