Moist-air norms and inner-products are currently used in atmospheric science for computing dry or moist singular vectors and for determining forecast errors or sensitivity to observations based on tangent linear and adjoint models. A new moist-air norm is defined starting from old results published in Marquet (QJRMS 1993) and based on the "Available Enthalpy" approach, namely one of the Exergy function defined in general thermodynamics. Some interesting and promising impacts of this new…

Exergy in meteorology: Definition and properties of moist available enthalpy

The exergy of the dry atmosphere can be considered as another aspect of the meteorological theories of available energies. The local and global properties of the dry available enthalpy function, also

The available‐enthalpy cycle. I: Introduction and basic equations

A diagnostic package is derived from the concept of specific available enthalpy, leading to the definition of a local and complete energy cycle. It is useful to understand the transformations of

On the concept of exergy and available enthalpy: Application to atmospheric energetics

The available enthalpy is an early form of the modern thermodynamic concept of exergy, which is the generic name for the amount of work obtainable when some matter is brought to a state of

Singular-Vector Perturbation Growth in a Primitive Equation Model with Moist Physics

Abstract Finite-time growth of perturbations in the presence of moist physics (specifically, precipitation) is investigated using singular vectors (SVs) in the context of a primitive equation

Further investigation on adjoint sensitivity of surface precipitation to initial conditions
