  1. Further steps towards a scale separated turbulence scheme: • Aim: General valid (consistent) description of sub grid scale (SGS) processes • Problem: Closure assumptions are constraints additional to the only valid first principals • General valid closure assumptions can’t exist • SGS turbulence and e.g. convection can’t be described by one set of 2-nd order equations • Solution: Scale separation • A system of closure equations for each scale separated process with specific closure assumptions • wake vortices by SSO (sub grid scale orography) blocking • horizontal shear vortices • surface induced density flow patterns • shallow and deep convection patterns • Complication: Larger scale SGS processes are interacting with turbulence!! • Scale interaction terms • Validation: • Operational verification • Statistical procession with the package TMOS using ACARS turbulence data DWD Matthias Raschendorfer COSMO Rome 2011

  2. Consistent partial solution for turbulence by spectral separation: Turbulenceis that class of sub grid scale structures being inagreementwithturbulence closure assumptions! • Turbulence closure is only valid for scales not larger than • the smallestpeak wave length Lp of inertial sub range spectra from samples in any direction ( ) • the largest (horizontal) dimension Dg of the control volume • Scale separation by • considering budgets with respect to the separation scale Filter is a moving volume average with infinitesimal vertical extension and horizontal dimension L . • averaging these budgets along the whole control volume (double averaging) generalized turbulent budgetsincluding additional scale interaction terms WakeNet workshop Oberpfaffenhofen: 10-11.05.2010 Matthias Raschendorfer

  3. Physical meaning of the scale interaction terms: • Budgets for the non turbulentSGS structures (SGS circulations): source term scale interaction sink The scale interaction term is shifting Co-Variance (e.g. Sub grid scale Kinetic Energy) form the circulation part of the spectrum (CKE) to the turbulent part (TKE) by virtue of shear generated by the non turbulent SGS flow patterns. production terms depend on: singleturbulent length scale and singleturbulent velocity scale (= ) production terms dependent on: specificlength scales and specificvelocity scales (= ) CKE TKE circulation-scale turbulence-scale and other and other statistical moments We need to consider additional length scales besides the turbulent length scale!

  15. Distribution between Model- and ARCAS-EDR: • Prediction-pedictor correlation: 0.44 DWD Matthias Raschendorfer COSMO Rome 2011

  16. Final distribution after successive regression: • 21 predictors • most effective besides edr: p, dt_tke_(con, sso, hsh) • Successive cubic regression of residuals • Prediction-pedictor correlation: 0.627 • Variance reduction: 39.9 % DWD Matthias Raschendorfer COSMO Rome 2011

  17. Conclusion: • A double filter approach formally generates a system of 2-nd order equations valid for turbulence closure approximations • It differs form the usual single filter approach (according to the grid scale) only by additional scale interaction terms • They describe the source of turbulent 2nd order moments by the action of shear from non turbulent(larger scale)sub grid scale flow structures • Those are • Horizontal shear eddies • Wake eddies by SSO • Convective vertical flow circulations • For them exist specific closure assumptions and they generate their own larger scale diffusion (e.g. by coherent mass flux transport) • Scale interaction is able to generate a needed larger amount of EDR compared to measurements • However, the used ACARS EDR data seem to be biased by • The domination of either low-level or high level measurements • The avoiding of strong turbulence events except in low levels near air ports • The influence of aircrafts ahead during the low level flights • Uncertainties of altitude registration • Flight activities • Thus for the time being, simply pressure or altitude is a significant predictor for EDR DWD Matthias Raschendorfer COSMO Rome 2011

  18. Next steps: • Correction of ACARS data and considering other data sources including LES-data • Some revisions concerning the solution of TKE equation and implicit formulation of vertical diffusion • Reformulation of the surface induced density flow term (original circulation term) in the current scheme to become a thermal SSO production dependent on SSO parameters • Investigation of adoptions regarding the turbulent length scale above the boundary layer • Generating a consistent ensemble of sub grid scale parameterizations by expressing the non turbulent ones scale dependent, containing the scale interaction terms as sink terms. • A revised formulation ofmass flux convectionhas already started (talk in Moskow) • Adoption of the sub grid scale cloud description in the framework of scale separation • Expression of sub grid scale transportby SSO eddies and horizontal shear eddies DWD Matthias Raschendorfer COSMO Rome 2011
