The non-hydrostatic REMO

The availability of local climate information is key when it comes to adaptation to climate change, because adaptation is mostly done on regional to local scales. REMO-NH is the latest development of REMO and offers an option to run REMO in a non-hydrostatic mode enabling horizontal resolutions higher than 10 km (Göttel, 2009). REMO-NH is based on an idea of Laprise (1992) and follows the implementation of Janjic et al. (2001).
