Energy-conserving and Hamiltonian low-order models in geophysical fluid dynamics

Gluhovsky, A.

Arbitrary truncations in the Galerkin method commonly used to derive low-order models (LOMs) may violate fundamental conservation properties of the original equations, causing unphysical behaviors in LOMs such as unbounded solutions. To avoid these, energy-conserving LOMs are developed in the form of coupled Volterra gyrostats, based on analogies between fluid dynamics and rigid body mechanics. Coupled gyrostats prove helpful in retaining in LOMs the Hamiltonian structure of the original equations. Examples of Hamiltonian LOMs describing 2-D and 3-D Rayleigh-BĂ©nard convection are presented, including the celebrated Lorenz model and its 3-D analog.
