# My Sandbox

Welcome to the `README`

of my sandbox. This page aims to provide an overview of the projects under /sandbox/Antoonvh/. The main theme here should be geophysical flows. More specifically, I am interested in the atmospheric boundary layer. I hope you find something that sparks your interest.

## Documentation

I invested some time in reading the source code to get some additional information on how the tree-grid structure is implemented in Basilisk and how Adaptivity works. To organize my toughts I wrote it down.

## Other READMEs

- Overview of pages used in published articles

- Tests for numerical schemes

- Overview of pages for the Plantenna project

## Miscellaneous pages

- Playing games with Basilisk
- A cautionary note on the simulation of a sharp inversion layer
- A cautionary note on using the Navier-Stokes solver without a properly initialized/restored pressure field
- A cautionary note on using surface tension in combination with grid adaptivity
- Evaluating a line integral on a tree grid
- Experimental adaptivity pages
- The Helmholtz filter
- Encode a movie on an octree
- Hilbert-order MPI-domain decomposition on trees

## Download

You can obtain a version of (most of) my sandbox contents using this script.:

```
$ chmod +x get_sb.sh
$ ./get_sb.sh Antoonvh
```

Which will put all `.c`

and `.h`

files in `Antoonvh/`

.

Maybe, some day, the wiki will have easy (read-only) access via darcs…
