The accuracy of tangent linear and adjoint versions of a primitive-equation model with moist physics is examined with respect to growing perturbations having significant initial magnitudes. The Jacobians for the convective parametrizations are approximated using a perturbation method. These Jacobians are then quality controlled to ensure that the approximations are suitable. Results show that: (I) linearization of the diabatic moist physics can have a significant impact; (2) even where such… CONTINUE READING
