Multiscale Numerics for the Atmosphere and Ocean In this talk we present a Variational Multiscale Stabilization (VMS) for Compressible Euler Equations applied to the Finite Element (FE) solution of nonhydrostatic stratified flows. The VMS method was firstly presented by Hughes and co-workers [1] in the context of incompressible flows. In the present work, recentely presented in [3], we extend these concepts to Compressible Flows. In the framework of nonhydrostatic atmospheric dynamics, we test the algorithm for problems at low Mach numbers. A general version of the current compressible VMS technique was originally devised for Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) of compressible flows without stratification [2]. The present work is justified by the previously observed good performance of VMS and by the advantages that an element-based Galerkin formulation offers on massively parallel architectures, a challange for both CFD and Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP). Unphysical vertical oscillations that may appear for not well-balanced approximations are a relevant problem in NWP , especially in the proximity of steep topography. In that respect, to properly discretize the dominant hydrostatics, a particular interpolation technique is proposed. To evaluate the performance of the method in this context, some standard test cases of stratified environments are presented. References [1] T.
