We develop an adaptive method of time layers with a linearly implicit Rosenbrock method as time integrator and symmetric interior penalty Galerkin method for space discretization for the advective Allen-Cahn equation with a non-divergence-free velocity field. Numerical simulations for advection-dominated problems demonstrate the accuracy and efficiency of the adaptive algorithm for resolving the sharp layers occurring in interface problems with small surface tension.
