Abstract:

The long term goals of this effort are i the development of a unified parameterization for the marine boundary layer ii the implementation and evaluation of this new parameterization in the US Navy NOGAPS model and iii the transition of this new version of the NOGAPS model into operations at Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center FNMOC. The main goal of this particular project is to develop a framework to test and evaluate unified parameterizations in NOGAPS using Large-Eddy Simulation LES models. In particular we will i develop a Single Column Model SCM version of the latest operational NOGAPS that can be used to simulate GEWEX Cloud Systems Study GCSS case-studies ii use the LES developed at JPL to simulate the GCSS case-studies and to evaluate and develop parameterizations iii develop an integrated framework to use the NOGAPS SCM and the LES model as a parameterization test-bed.
