STATUS:
beta-test (please contact joeckel@mpch-mainz.mpg.de)
INSTITUTION: DLR Institute for Physics of the Atmosphere
Max Planck Institute for Chemistry
TYPE: process (Advection)
MAINTAINER: Michael Traub, Patrick Jöckel
ORIGINAL CODE: Christian Reithmeier, Volker Grewe, Robert Sausen
DESCRIPTION: The Lagrangian model ATTILA (Atmospheric Tracer Transport In a Lagrangian Model) has been developed to treat the global-scale transport of passive trace species in the atmosphere within the framework of a general circulation model (GCM). ATTILA runs online within a GCM and uses the GCM produced wind field to advect the centroids of constant mass air parcels into which the model atmosphere is divided. Each trace constituent is thereby represented by a mixing ratio in each parcel. ATTILA contains state-of-the-art parameterizations of convection, turbulent boundary layer mixing, and inter-parcel transport and provides an algorithm to map the tracer concentrations from the trajectories to the gridpoint representation of the GCM.

INSTITUTION: Max Planck Institute for Chemistry
TYPE: process (Stratospheric Water Vapor)
MAINTAINER: Christoph Brühl

DESCRIPTION: The H2O submodel defines H2O as a tracer, provides its initialization in stratosphere and mesosphere from satellite data, and controls the consistent feedback with specific humidity of the base model. This submodel further accounts for the water vapor source of methane oxydation in the stratosphere (and mesosphere), either by using the water vapor tendency of a chemistry submodel (e.g., MECCA), or by using a satellite climatology (UARS/HALOE) of methane together with monthly climatological conversion rates from a MAECHAM4/CHEM simulation.

DESCRIPTION: This submodel is for fast online calculation of photolysis rates using cloud water content and cloudiness calculated by the base model and/or climatological ozone and climatological aerosol. A delta-twostream-method is used for 8 spectral intervals in UV and visible together with precalculated effective cross-sections (sometimes temperature and pressure dependent) for more than 50 tropospheric and stratospheric species. If used for the mesosphere, also Ly-alpha radiation is included. Only the photolysis rates for species present are calculated. Optionally, the UV-C solar heating rates by ozone and oxygen are calculated. This submodule has been derived from a preliminary version of the PHOTO submodel.
