List of presentation

A tip for the MRFPBL


Song you hong yonsei univ jimy dudhia ncar shu hua chen u c davis

The highest level for the PBL is the half of the total number of vertical layers

KLPBL = KL/2 (currently in WRF & MM5)

 The PBL mixing is ill-posed with many layers near the surface as done for the air pollution application

Correction : In the “mrfpbl.F”, change

KLPBL = 1 (modified one)


Wrf weather and research forecasting model http wrf model org

Community model: NCAR, NCEP, FSL, AFWA, NSSL, and University communities

Real time fcsts : NCAR (22km, 10km), NSSL(34km), AWFA(45km), Italy (20km)

MRF PBL, Kain-Fritsch cumulus

RRTM, Dudhia Radiation

Ncep cloud microphysics

- Hong et al. (1998), NCEP RSM cloud physics

- NCEP cloud microphysics v1.0

(Hong et al. 1998, with some modifications)

- NCEP cloud microphysics v1.1

(Jimy’s bug fix in computing Vr, Vs)

- > solves the too much precip.

- NCEP cloud microphysics v1.2

(Hong et al. 2002, the new scheme)

Modifications after Dudhia (1989) and Rutledge and Hobbs (1983)


Background

Lin et al. (1983) and Rutledge and Hobbs (1983) -> core part of microphyscs

A typical problem -> too much cirrusdue to Ni from Fletcher

Different assumptions in microphysics ( Meyers et al. 1992, Kruger et al. 1995, Reisner et al. 1998, Rotstayn et al. 2000, Ryan 2001 )

Sedimentation of ice crystals (Manning and Davis, 1997, Wang 2001)

Background

Fletcher : D89, RH83

- qicrit has small range of T : 0.1 and 1 gkg-1 for –27 and –32C

This study

- qicrit=0.18gkg-1, at T=-40C, P=300 mb

RH83,D89

This study

Comparison of deposition rate of water vapor onto ice as a function of cloud temperature, with the assumption that cloud ice mixing ratio is 0.1 gkg-1 and the air is supersaturated with respect to ice by 10 %.

Exp1 : Dudhia microphysics (too much cloud ice -> warm bias)

NOLW : Exp1 but without LW radiation feedback due to ice cloud)

Ice cloud - radiation feedback

More cloud ice

Less SW heating

More LW heating

Tropospheric cooling

Upper level heating

Less SFC buoyancy

Less cloud ice

Less explicit rain

Less implicit rain

Less Precipitation, Warmer Troposphere


Concluding remarks

New scheme produces better cloudiness (remove high cloud bias)

New scheme alleviates the discontinuity problem of small and large ice particles

Reduction of ice clouds induces more surface precipitation

Combined effects of improved microphysics and the inclusion of sedimentation of ice crystals are attributed to the improvement of precipitation, cloudiness, and large-scale features

Sedimentation of HD1990 dominates the effects of detailed ice-microphysical processes
