SCIENTIFIC OBJECTIVE

What is the local impact of deep convection on the TTL composition ?

What is the relative contribution of transport and chemistry ?

TOOLS:

- 3D meso-scale simulation with on line chemistryusing the

RAMS-Chemistry model

- Available meteorological and chemistry data

STEP 1: METEOROLOGICAL SIMULATION

Grid 1

  • SIMULATION SETUP

  • 42 hours from 2001/02/07 12UT

  • 2 nested grids

  • Grid 1: 20 km horizontal resolution

  • Grid 2: 4 km horizontal resolution

  • - 61 vertical levels from surface to 30km altitude(500m in the UTLS)

  • - Initialisation from ERA40 analysis and radiosoundings

  • Subgrid scale convective parameterization for Grid 1 from Freitas et al (2004)

Grid 2

STEP 1: METEOROLOGICAL SIMULATION

Surface rainfall accumulated from 2001/02/08 15UT to 2001/02/09 00UT

from the Bauru radar

from the RAMS model

STEP 2: SIMULATION WITH ON-LINE CHEMISTRY

  • CHEMISTRY SETUP

  • 29 species and 71 reactions

  • - Gaseous and aqueous chemistry

  • Surface emissions of ozone precursors

  • Parametrization of NOx production by lightning

  • Initialisation from MOCAGE (Météo-France) global fields

FUTURE WORK

  • *FURTHER ANALYSIS OF THE 8 FEB 2001 CASE STUDY:

    • ROLE OF SOLUBLE SPECIES (OH, HNO3)

    • SIMILAR ANALYSIS ON A LONGER SIMULATION

* IMPLEMENTATION OF THE CPTEC TRAJECTORY CODE

FOR CHEMICAL SPECIES

* IMPLEMENTATION OF THE RTTOV CODE FOR « MODEL TO SATELLITE » COMPARISONS

* SIMULATIONS FOR THE 13-14 FEB 2004 CASE STUDY (SF2) AND THE 24 FEB 2004 CASE STUDY (SF4)
