Abstract
In absence of forcing and dissipation, the atmosphere can be described
within the framework of Hamiltonian dynamics. We introduce the
parcel formulation for such a atmosphere, which forms the basis of our
Hamiltonian numerical method.
Introduction
Although our climate is ultimately driven by (nonuniform) solar
heating, many aspects of the flow can be understood qualitatively from
forcing-free and frictionless dynamics. In this limit of zero forcing and
