We propose a method to explain the behaviour of the Godunov finite volume scheme applied to the linear wave equation with Coriolis source term at low Froude number. In particular, we use the Hodge decomposition and we study the properties of the modified equation associated to the Godunov scheme. Based on the structure of the discrete kernel of the linear operator discretized by using the Godunov scheme, we clearly explain the inaccuracy of the classical Godunov scheme at low Froude number and we introduce a way to modify it to recover a correct accuracy.
