Examining the Sensitivity of an Idealized Model to Changes in the Initial Potential Temperature Perturbation. Chip Helms. Background. The Idealized Model: CM1. Created by George Bryan (NCAR) 3D, non-hydrostatic, non-linear, cloud-resolving, idealized model No data assimilation
Delay in reaching peak updraft strength is non-linear function of θ'
Relatively low sensitivity at 7 km radius and above
2-6Δx 2-6 km radii
Relatively high sensitivity at 6 km radius and below
