This thesis presents a numerical framework for simulating advection-dominated flows which reconciles the advantages of Eulerian mesh-based schemes with those of a Lagrangian particle-based discretization strategy. Particularly, the strategy proposed in this thesis inherits the diffusion-free properties as in Lagrangian particle-based advection, while simultaneously possessing high-order accuracy and local conservation properties as in state-of-the-art Eulerian mesh-based discretization strategies. These properties render the scheme particularly apt for simulating flow- and transport processes in which the physical diffusion is low, such as turbulent flows, or simulating flow problems with sharp and complex-shaped interfaces, such as the air-water interface in breaking ocean waves.
