  1. Modelling tracer transport by a cumulus ensemble: Lateral boundary conditions and large scale ascent

  2. Advective timescale: necessary condition for model results to be meaningful: CRM  Specified lateral boundary conditions (SLBC, horizontal advection)  Advection of tracers by the large scale vertical wind (VLSAT) Previously (Lu et al., 2000): periodic boundary conditions in cumulus ensemble model also for tracers, but no prescribed horizontal LSA for tracers

  3.  Specified lateral boundary conditions (SLBC, horizontal advection)  Advection of tracers by the large scale vertical wind (VLSAT) Previously: the effect of net large scale ascent e.g. over the Pacific Warm Pool is considered for q,  BUT IT WAS NEGLECTED FOR TRACERS

  4. motivation  case study of the influence of deep convection on atmospheric chemistry

  5. WRF – Weather Research and Forecast Model developed by NCAR and others 2D or 3D  fit for small scale meteorological phenomena www.wrf-model.org

  6. TOGA-COARE intensive flux array

  7. SATELLITE PIC ISCCP clouds IR retrieved cloud top temperatures e.g. Rossow and Schiffer, 1999

  13. Sensitivity Runs – Idealized Tracers  2D runs, 500km horizontal domain  350m vertical grid spacing in the troposphere  Walcek (2000) advection scheme 3(2) different setups:  periodic lateral boundary conditions (PLBC, k=1)  specified lateral boundary conditions (SLBC, k=0) u, (v), w, q, C=  SLBC+VLSAT (k=0)
