Abstract:

A one-dimensional second-moment turbulence closure model which includes a detailed radiative transfer scheme and a parameterized cloud physics is described. The Reynolds equations are developed from the primitive set of equations and the necessary closure assumptions are discussed. The nature of initial and boundary conditions required by the model, both for the mean and the turbulence variables, is presented.
